Sunzen Art Gallery presents Allegory, an Exhibition Featuring Internationally Celebrated Artist Chen Wenling’s Most Recognizable Series
We are pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition, Allegory - the Storytelling of Chen Wenling, from Jul. 30th to Sep. 21.
Chen Wenling’s artistic practices center around social changes brought by the rapid development and industrialization of China. Through his incredibly creative and imaginative lenses, he expressed in-depth reflection on issues such as reality, secularity, and consumerism. Through the appropriation of Chinese folktales and allegories, he creates an attentive and alluring narrative that conveys the philosophy of symbiosis.
The indoor exhibition, Allegory, is in collaboration with the Vancouver Biennale, and marks the artist’s first exposure to Canada. Featuring 11 pieces of Chen Wenling’s sculptures from his most well-known, the Red Memories series, this exhibition unfolds the complex questions brought by commercialism, materialism, and the excessive consumption of the environment.
