Catalogue Note

Zhan Wang uses a variety of media—sculpture, installation, photography, and video—to create works that address and play with ideas about landscape and the environment. The artist's most well-known work is a series of artificial rock sculptures, which replicate the rocks found in the gardens of traditional Chinese scholars, but are cast in industrial materials like stainless steel and chrome, transforming something traditional into something modern.
