We are delighted to announce the opening of the artist duo Jingfang Hao & Lingjie Wang’s first solo exhibition at WHITE SPACE BEIJING on June 3rd, 2017. This show will survey the artists’ installation-centered practice in recent years.
Jingfang Hao & Lingjie Wang’s creations focus on nuanced changes in nature. Through utilizing devices and mechanisms of materials science and engineering, the artists continuously explore human perceptions and emotions correlated to the physical world. Presented this time are a series of installations including long-term projects Sun Drawing and Rainbow. With an in-depth research into and application of optical elements, thermosensitive materials and mechanical design, Hao and Wang take natural elements such as light, gravity and time as their primary artistic materials, gradually lessening the importance of the technological aspect and renewing at once the viewer’s personal experience on the sensual dimension.
Jingfang Hao (b. 1985, Shandong) & Lingjie Wang (b. 1984, Shanghai) currently work and live in Mulhouse (France) and Shanghai. The artists graduated from Shanghai Maritime University in 2017 with B.E. in industrial design; obtained their MA and Diploma national supérieur d’expression plastique at École Supérieure d’Art de Lorraine in 2011 and 2012, respectively.
