“Boat” installation by Zhu Jinshi:

Pearl Lam Galleries Special Project Space will present Boat by Beijing-born artist Zhu Jinshi – a new 15-metre installation composed of 10,000 sheets of rice paper that took 50 days and 14 skilled workers to construct. The traditional Chinese rice paper (xuan) that is the primary medium embodies tensile strength and resistance to corrosion, symbolic of time itself. Zhu Jinshi says of his piece, “While time only moves forward, the Boat can sail in any direction. The Boat‘s cultural resonance is constructed of time itself, continuously ebbing and flowing through our imagination.”
