“I would like to write ‘a novel’, about my memories and perceptions, as well as all the absurd ideas...” - Lu Lei
This exhibition is a part of the project “Wander Giant” which Lu Lei has been planning for years. Using textual narrative as an attempt, the artist depicts a “fantasy of wander giants”, through five sculptures and installations. This show continues until 29 March, 2020.
