ZHANG Ding‘s Solo Exhibition Buddha Jumps over the Wall will be on view in Top Contemporary Art Centre (Building 5, 18 Wuwei Road, next to ShanghART Taopu Warehouse). The exhibition lasts until July 1st during which viewers will once again be able to experience a unique atmosphere a la ZHANG Ding.
The abundant content of ingredients and the complex production processes in the cuisine Buddha Jumps over the Wall become the starting point of this time’s ZHANG Ding Solo Exhibition. From 2007 until today, the artist has been continuously pursuing the self-consistent evolution of his aesthetic system. Both biological and societal characters of eating as a daily behaviour are constantly interspersed throughout this exhibition. From getting food to a feast on carnival, from a disorderly party to energy dissipation, Buddha Jumps over the Wall involves a simple system with an abundantly dramatic character. The exhibition continues the tradition of controlling force on the site since ZHANG Ding solo exhibition Opening in 2011.
