Shengzhong, Lu: Shape and Shade

Lot 7842: Shengzhong, Lu: Shape and Shade

Auction Date: Nov 28, 2009

Estimate: €180 - €360

Description: Shengzhong, Lu: Shape and Shade

Shape and Shadow. 5 Scherenschnitte (3 große Positive und 2 kleine Negative) aus rotem dünnem, einseitig eingefärbtem Velin. ca. 17-24 x 13-17 cm (Darstellungs- und Blattgröße).
Lu Shengzong studierte 1987 an der Central Academy of Fine Art in Bejing in der Abteilung für außereuropäische Kunst und ist heute dort Professor. Während seines Studiums begann er sich schon dafür zu interessieren, wie ein altes chinesisches Kunsthandwerk wie der Scherenschnitt in das tägliche ländliche Leben Chinas integriert werden kann. Die vier Scherenschnitte stammen aus einer Installation mit Tausenden von Scherenschnitten. Rot symbolisiert Glück und diese Art von Papier wird gewöhnlich zu Feierlichkeiten genutzt wie Hochzeiten und Neujahr. Der Künstler äußert sich dazu folgendermaßen: I use paper to cut this little red figure to demonstrate the delicate fragility of human beings. Ephemeral. A human's life is shorter than a paper's thickness....".

NOTE

"I did not invent the shape of the Little Red Figure.
The Little Red Figure stretches out its four limbs symmetrically-its feet touch the earth as its hands support the sky. Similar figures from early civilizations have been found in various areas of the world. As the earliest form of a self-portrait, and the first evidence of self-awareness, the figure illustrates many similarities among early civilizations.
With advances in scientific technology, and a general decline in religious beliefs, it is probable that few people any longer believe that souls exist inside human bodies as little figures. Nor do people perform rituals to callback departed souls. However, materialism and lack of concern for the world beyond the here and now have left the modern man spiritually and mentally damaged...as I cut paper with my scissors and remove the shapes that result from my activity, I make a statement against the separation of soul and body in contemporary thought. I summon the detached forms of the souls so that they can be reunited with their bodies. This can be compared to the juxtaposition of positive and negative forms, or the perfect coexistence of the curves of yin and yang. From the start, I felt an inner obligation to understand this simple yet complicated mission."
