In everyone’s heart lives a unique garden, as Buddha says, “to see a heaven in a wild flower and the bodhi in a tree.” Rather than a courtyard itself, the word courtyard refers to a unique perspective on personal, psychological and emotional habitat that allows the object to meet a dialogued inner peace. Entitled “A Transient Universe”, Liang Binbin’s solo exhibition will be at IVAM, Spain until November 25, 2012.
Literally, “A Transient Universe” means that each object withdraws into itself in an unusual way, each paper sculpture forms a luminous around itself, and as the calm presents itself in the Universe after the collision of energy and the interactions of stars, no one knows what will happen the next second. Although towers, teddy bears, automobiles, bones and heart, are elements frequently presented in Liang’s artwork, he believes that he never reach to familiarize with them and he need to obtain its metaphysical comprehension. He leave them (aside) in the scene and he, as a bystander, watch in silence.
