Xiao Yu

BB

2019

Bronze

H210 x W173 x D147 cm



The term "BB", with its duality of simple appearance and overabundance of connotations, bears the artist's reflection on the phenomenon of over-interpretation in the contemporary art world. Xiao Yu’s BB series of bronze sculptures is an extension of his past "bamboo" sculptures that emphasize the “violent deconstruction” of traditional symbols. Having evolved from that, the new series moves away from the manifestation of violence and instead devotes itself to the construction and writing of the artist's own language. The lines of these works are disorderly yet fluent, reminiscent of the brushstrokes in Chinese calligraphy. Xiao Yu adapts the medium of bronze to make the "bamboo" break away from its innate physical characteristics and realize otherwise unachievable postures. The lines and colors form an internal context that does not depend on the external environment – fragmentation and alienation of bamboo as a symbol makes it a part of his personal abstract language. The artist retains the visual cognition of bamboo through details on the works while removing its traditional connotations, and in this process, the subtle convergence from the natural to the artificial is acquired, providing a most intuitive aesthetic experience to the audience.



Xiao Yu (b. 1965, Inner Mongolia) graduated from the Mural Painting Department at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in 1989 and now lives and works in Beijing. He was invited to participate in international exhibitions including La Biennale di Venezia, Lyon Biennial of Contemporary Art, Istanbul Biennial, Shanghai Biennale and Guangzhou Triennial including the Offsite Project at the Royal College of Art in London. He has exhibited works at Centre Pompidou, Fukuoka Asian Art Museum Japan, Seoul Art Museum, Bern Art Museum Switzerland,NAMOC, Shanghai Art Museum, Guangdong Art Museum, Ullens Center for Contemporary Art (UCCA), Pace Gallery Beijing and other eminent exhibition spaces. He was awarded the Chinese Contemporary Art Award (CCAA) in 2000.

A Fine Fusion between Minimalist Music & Contemporary Art

K11 MUSEA is committed in fostering cross-cultural and art exchanges, we are proud to present a minimalist performance series by the Hong Kong Contemporary Music Group, inspired by the collection of iconic artworks on display at the K11 Art & Cultural Centre. The series pays tribute to 3 iconic and pioneering minimalist composers – Terry Riley, Philip Glass and Michael Nyman.

The hugely influential and significant minimalist movement in music, with its ingenious use of patterns, removed the trivial barriers forged between ‘high’ and ‘low’ art in music; resonating to K11’s vision to advocate the interconnectedness of creativity, culture and innovation for global millennial appreciation in art.

The centrepiece of the entire programme, Terry Riley’s In C, written back in 1964, was the founding work of the minimalist movement in music. The most striking aspect of this work is its flexibility – above the always-present pulsating ‘groove’ that propels the music forward, each musician has a high degree of freedom when performing and interacting with neighbouring musicians – and yet each rendition is unmistakably recognisable as In C. Riley’s In C, with no fixed instrumentation, is in essence about community, and its ecology of continually evolving landscape is perhaps comparable to the space at the K11 Art & Cultural Centre.

The programme is curated and directed by Dr. Fung Lam, previously the Director of Artistic Planning with the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra who also holds the distinction of being the first Hong Kong composer ever commissioned by the BBC.

Join us in this stimulating and minimalist music programme.
