Zhang Ding, Sound Absorber (Silkscreen Print on Mirror), 2015
Four colour silkscreen print with gold and silver mirrored ink on reverse of glass
31 x 42 cm
Edition of 35, accompanied by a certificate
For Enter the Dragon, Ding transformed the ICA Theatre into a ‘mutating sound sculpture’, covering the room with reflective surfaces, suspended sound panels and a series of rotating mirrored sculptures situated next to two music stages. This piece directly referenced the final scene from the seminal Bruce Lee film Enter the Dragon (1973) – considered one of the greatest Chinese martial art films of all time.
This related special edition consists of a gold silkscreen image printed on the back of a mirror. Showing a close-up of a sound absorbent material, this is a detail of artwork that hangs on the mirrored walls of Zhang Ding's installation.
Zhang Ding was born in 1980 in Gansu, China. He resides and works in Shanghai. Zhang Ding's practice is mainly presented through his solo projects, which includes video, installations, paintings and live performance. His works play on ideas of sensory perception and will, constructing absurd scenes full of contrast, often creating metaphors layered with societal references. These may be seen as a series of deconstructed mise-en-scenes, or as an environmental sculpture of twisting and merging emotional atmospheres.
