Wang Tiande's solo exhibition shows his most recent experimental ink works in which he renews the presentation of ink to promote traditional ink art.
He uses incense sticks to create burn marks to replace ink strokes on rice paper. He places the hollowed paper on top of rubbings of ancient calligraphic inscriptions, conducting a dialogue between traditional doctrine and the conceptual art of today. The title Kai Men, which means "opening the door", speaks of Wang's attempts to open a door to ink art.
10 am-6 pm, until May 26. Today Art Museum, 32 Baiziwan Lu (Road), Chaoyang district, Beijing. 010-5876-0600 Ext 100.
