Room Divider by Hongjie Yang in Aluminium and Bronze - 2016
DESCRIPTIONContemporary room divider, by Hongjie Yang, Eindhoven (NL) This item is sculpted in Aluminum and Bronze. The use of these two materials results in a stunning contrast between the in and-outside. The polished surface on the inside is showing strong bright colors in contradiction with the outside that works as a shell.
Part of his Radical Fossils collection from 2016: Primitivism once gained an impetus from anxieties about technological innovation and, above all, from the Age of Discovery. Centuries later, technological leaps to an energy abundant world is again drastically altering what was once familiar. An unsettling feeling starts to rise and our anxiety is once again eager to be soothed. As a reaction to this, an resurgence of primitive aesthetics and fossil materials will take place. Experimental objects inspired by geological samples are created to allude to deeply expressive, permanent human nature and cultural structure in contrast to nascent modern realities.
