  • About the Workshop

    Date: May 9th, 2019 13:00-15:00

    Instructor: WANG Yanling, Art Practitioner

    Language: Chinese

    Venue: East Beijing Road Elementary School (Niuzhuang Road Campus)


    On the second floor of Tobias Rehberger’s exhibition is portrait vases (1997-2019), a “group exhibition within an exhibition,” in which a collection of 50 uniquely composed flower-adorned sculptures reveal the aesthetic quirks of a community of artists and friends associated with the artist. The sculptures in various shapes dotted with different flowers are the avatars of his friends, as if one can know their appearance and different characters by these works.

    The same floor also displays sculptures of overlaying oval fiberglass named the mother series. It shows the mother image in the eyes of the artist and contains all the memories and emotions associated with her. Such creations are both interesting and mysterious. From an artist’s perspective, what would a vase look like if it were used to represent your mother? Perhaps it has a soft shape and beautiful patterns composed of curves as your mother is gentle and elegant and speaks softly. Maybe it has a tough outline with strong contrast color blocks, because your mother is capable and candid, as well as a little strict.

    The fourth-grade students of the East Beijing Road Elementary School will start with the exhibition tour and then make a paper vase with abstract patterns in class under the guidance of Ms. Yanling. The mother image and character and the parent-child emotional bond will be transformed into visual forms and colors. Each student will also be encouraged to select an item related to the memory about his or her mother and combine it with the paper vase. They can also put a bottle with fresh flowers inside the paper vase. Such mother-related creation is an alternative description of mother and the best gift for her on Mother's Day. By making such a gift, one can recall the time and lives spent with their mother, and share their stories.
