STATEMENT


The intuition for physical attribute of materials constitutes the start point of Zhong Yunshu’s practice among which it is the chimerability, permeability, installability, the intrinsic free traction of force and arbitrary stretch that truly attract and tempt her. It seems to be a rational start point that is relatively objective, however the entire process is against experience even that she intentionally avoids or resists the involvement of experience, and indulges in self-seducing barbarous growth which is occasional, random, uncontrollable and even emotional. she doesn’t have a conceptual assumption or a blueprint. If have, it is the operability and handiness of device except for the limitation of material and the space itself. It is in the resistance and compromise among uncertain people, objects and space, her perception and cognition towards material, form and space is constantly inspired. She considers the perception a fission which embodies many interesting contrasts and dialectics, and contains numerous parameter relationships and narrative clues of different logic like parallel and overlap. Among them, there is no superordination and subordination or domination, it reveals the proliferation and disappearance of physical world with a head-up vision. At that time, as a state of existence, the natural growth of thoughts and feelings become her art proposition and main style. To viewers, the mazy theater is both a closed viewpoint deprived of all social experience and functional attribute, and an open discourse, releasing sensory adventures full of temptations and fantacies.
