SHIBUNKAKU is privileged to announce our upcoming solo exhibition of artworks by Zheng Chongbin, one of the most important contemporary artists in Asia who continues to hold the classical Chinese ink tradition and Western pictorial abstraction in productive mutual tension.
This collaboration marks an important milestone as it will be Zheng’s first showcase in Japan. The artist’s installation project, Liquid Space, a three-dimensional wall sculpture mounted on custom-made honeycomb-aluminum panels, allows to experience Zheng’s integration of the light and space in the artist’s installation practice. Liquid Space will be displayed at Ryōsokuin, a subtemple of Kenninji, the oldest Zen temple in Kyoto, in accordance with Zheng’s passion about Japanese Zen and its inextricable links to his works.
The main exhibition Zheng Chongbin: Dimension and Flow will be held at SHIBUNKAKU, open every day from April 14 to April 27.
Come and immerse yourself in Zheng’s ink and the world of Zen.
