Memory by Li Xiaofeng at The Opposite House
(Beijing, September 10, 2012) – The Opposite House is pleased to present ?Memory?, a 6-piece porcelain wearable art installation by artist, Li Xiaofeng from Red Gate Gallery.
Li Xiaofeng?s restoration of classical Chinese blue and white porcelain in the form of contemporary couture restates a Chinese aesthetic in an accessible form, appreciated by both Chinese and international audiences. Having researched and refined his process for over ten years, Li has proven his understanding of porcelain ware, its historical role in Chinese culture and early commercial trading that took the finest china around the world. He has re-valued what has been commonly called waste shards ? rejected pieces littered around the imperial kilns of Jingdezhen over the centuries, or buried, broken fragments along the layered trading routes in every direction across China.
