Li Songsong

Nov 4, 2012


Li Songsong delves into abstraction and installation for his second solo exhibition at Pace Beijing. Comprised a single work, the artist has created a large metal tunnel internally lined with his characteristically thick color grids and undulating shades. Li Songsong literally inverts his signature impasto oil on aluminum medium, turning the traditional structure inside out. However, instead of dismantling and reconstructing found imagery from historic and often politically charged photographs, the artist has chosen to depict nothing. There is a lack of iconography and an absence of figuration with which viewers must grapple to construct their own experiential meaning.
