Wang Wei

Group Exhibition - [04.12.21 - 12.06.22]
The Rearview Landscape, or a Trip of Ownership

Pleased to share Wang Wei’s presentation of ‘Higher Altitude Montane Forest’ a metal structure made with ply-wood, cement, tile and paint in the group exhibition “The Rearview Landscape, or a Trip of Ownership” at UCCA Dune. Curated by UCCA Curator, Yan Fang this exhibition is currently on view through 12 June 2022.

‘Higher Altitude Montane Forest’ is a site-specific work that Wang Wei created based on the architecture of UCCA Dune. In his previous work, Wang examined zoos in different cities, focusing on the relationship between viewing and being viewed, between visitors and the observed animals. The zoo’s display areas almost become like stages, and by manipulating the viewing angle and the interior and exterior lighting, Wang makes viewers feel as if they are part of the attraction. In this work, Wang has taken the old, blocky, and irregular cement platform that gives off a greenish lustre from the Primate House at the Shanghai Zoo and replicated it in the cavernous exhibition hall, creating a fabricated mountain forest inside the museum.
