  • Introduction

    Beckett’s writings (especially his writings for the theatre) have been labeled as absurd, especially the representative piece En Attendant Godot, which has been considered as the foundation of absurdist theatre. Ugo Rondinone’s commissioned works for the Rockbund Art Museum likewise embodies the experience of the absurd: dream-like colors and rays of light outline a ultra-realistic atmosphere, roaming and meditating clowns transform the entirety of the space into an illusionary but real theater. How should one understand the relationship between these two artists’ practices? Starting from the three abstracts “Masquerade of identities”,” A sensibility to nothingness”, “Beckett’s walk”, Prof. Jiang Yuhui will articulate more from his research.
