ZHAN WANG | Form in Flux

Echoing his 2011 installation work of “My Personal Universe” in which he begins with the explosion of a massive boulder into fragments that resembles the primordial explosion billions of years ago, the concept of continuous transformation of creation and destruction sits at the heart of his new work. The “Forms in Flux” rose out of a volcanic boulder that was formed through geological fissure and volcanic eruptions dating back to more than a half million years ago in Sierra Nevada. With this uniquely complex natural material, the artist collaborated with Rén Space and used the latest advancement in robotics and digital technology to transform massive 5000kg volcanic boulders, one of the most difficult materials to carve into a new form in unprecedented scale with vigor and delicate balance.
