The phenomenon of pareidolia refers to the human tendency to perceive connection from ambiguous or random stimuli, for instance, when we see the shape of a face in a cloud formation. Geng Xue and Sun Ziyao duo exhibition establishes a space where viewers are invited to meditate over the myriad of different meanings and perspectives pervading through the artworks.
Renowned for her delicate, yet lively porcelain sculptures and video installations, Geng Xue is 2018 Sydney Biennale artist. Her work The Poetry of Michelangelo is now showing at Artspace. Her combination work of porcelain and film ”Mr. Sea’ is in the White Rabbit Collection. Sun Ziyao has flourished his own artistic visual language as he communicates his deep appreciation for traditional Chinese culture, by adopting Chinese ink painting techniques, while contemporaneously revealing a kind of modern sensibility by emanating from each unique work. Both artists did their training at the top art school in China, Central Academy of Fine Art in Beijing.
Drawing on the Biennale’s theme of Superposition, Vermilion Art exhibition Pareidolia also plays with the concept of perception and perspective as Geng Xue and Sun Ziyao duo exhibition, both consciously and subconsciously, encourages its audience to explore and examine the possible perspective and meanings within their artworks.
