Leading Chinese artist and teacher Qiu Zhijie takes over Spring Workshop with an expansive installation, The Universe of Naming. Through a close examination of the world’s concrete and conceptual territories, Qiu depicts a restless and insecure landscape with engraved spheres of glass, wood and steel, set against a backdrop of found, made, free and confined objects. The new inter-relationships result in an immersive and explorative experience.
The work is the next incarnation of Qiu’s Blueprints exhibition at the Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art in the Netherlands, which in turn informed his concept as Chief Curator of the 9th Shanghai Bienniale in 2012.
