Description

This article relates two of Wang Gongxin’s works, "Edible Grey" and "The Sky of Brooklyn" on their emphasis on Eastern and Western relations and the cultural differences that emerge within such contexts. In his work, "Edible Grey," the fragrant black Chinese ink represents the East, while the milk represents the West. As for "The Sky of Brooklyn," a hole in the ground leading to a video image of the sky of Brooklyn, New York, reflects differing perceptions of the East and West through a play on Western and Eastern sayings, such as the American phrase, “If you have nothing to do, why don’t you dig a hole to China?” Through these multi-sensory experiences, these two installations require both cognitive and physical engagement. Both works were installed at different times in his courtyard home in Beijing. (Russ, Hannah ‘18)
