Strange Views

Artist: Na Buqi
installation | Site-specific installation | 2020x300x300mm | 2016

These sculptures present views; but they are views of abstracted imaginations of spatial transformations, and not of specific places. Two types of space however do get created: one is realistic and has immediate connection to the body; the other is accessible only as vision and in the imagination. Street lamps—such common elements of city view—can create a “view within the view” when set as sculpture in the museum, and also shape another strange view of the city, glittering like a matrix in space.
