Artist Huang Yiwei explores connections between creatures, symbols and systems in his latest exhibition at The Opposite House
(Beijing, 5 February 2021) – The Opposite House is delighted to present a new art exhibition in the Atrium by Beijing artist Huang Yiwei. Titled “The Invisible Vein”, the show features the artist’s enquiry of the inner workings behind global issues and seemingly disparate symbols. Working with wire that he painstakingly twists into the form of blood vessels, Huang seeks to peel back the surface and invite the viewer to reflect on connections between contemporary issues of gender, ecology and belief systems.
For Huang, the significance of blood vessels is not limited to their biological function; they wield a spiritual power, one that is not restricted to organic forms but also held by inorganic molecules and symbols. Blood is the universal system that connects them and the meaning they play in contemporary culture.
Born in Beijing in 1980, Huang comes from multi-disciplinary background working in sculpture and performing arts. From 1998 to 2002, he studied art in the Department of Sculpture, Academy of Arts & Design at Tsinghua University. He then went on to study performing arts at The Central Academy of Drama from 2002 to 2004.
“The Invisible Vein” is now on show in the Atrium of The Opposite House till 11th March 2021.
