Chinese Toy Story
The Opposite House Gallery, Sanlitun, Beijing
Really impressive sculptures by Laurens Tan in this exhibition curated by The Red Gate Gallery in the architectural gem The Opposite House design hotel.
This is toys in grand size, jewelry made into sculptures, everyday objects turned into art objects. The shining, bright bicycle taxis are transporting large Chinese signs (that I unfortunately do not know the meaning of) and a revolving sculpture. The bicycles are not to be pedalled, not to be steered. All that is left of the bicycle is the form.
