Today I had a most interesting visit to artist Wang Jianwei’s studio.
Upon arriving I was met by large iron gates featuring the artist’s own initials W. J. W. Fancy, and to tell you the truth I liked it!
I was given the grand tour of the large studio warehouse which was once a factory.
Photographs from his more conceptual installations covered the walls, as did his sculptures made from white plastic.
Much like the mummies of Egypt, his sculptural statues were securely stored in bubble wrap and resting against the wall.
Wang Jianwei’s studio was packed with materials and projects which were recently returned after exhibition. The studio also featured some of his current projects such as the many cabinets and furniture which was stored in one corner of the large room. For those interested, his latest exhibition Yellow Signal is currently on display at UCCA in 798 art district.
