Description

For each section of the proposal “Today No Water”, the artist provides illustrations and meanings behind the drawings in this artist notes. Definitions of Chinese words that are relevant to the proposal’s content are excerpted and translated from the Xinhua Dictionary in each section. Short personal anecdotes, narratives of people’s lives, and philosophical thoughts are recorded in “Today No Water”. Chinese fables and old Chinese sayings are also mentioned and expanded in this artist’s note. Wu’s work, “is filled with satire, language tricks, symbols and radical games” (Wu Shanzhuan, Sotheby’s EST 1744, https://www.sothebys.com/en/buy/auction/2022/new-wave-beyond-yuanmingyuan-an-important-european-private-collection-of-chinese-contemporary-art/wu-shanzhuan-wu-shan-zhuan-today-no-water-298-jin).
