‘A Blueprint for Ruins’ reverberates with the shadows of the dispossessed within China’s urban metamorphosis. The artworks guide us toward the remnants of memories woven into the very fabric of each structure, even as the walls crumble. As the artist Hu Weiyi poignantly writes: “It’s as if every abandoned building, about to disappear, is attempting to sing its last note, and eventually they will come together to form a requiem for an era.”
The White Rabbit Gallery was established in 2009 to share Judith Neilson’s private collection of 21st-century Chinese art with the public. ‘A Blueprint for Ruins’ will be the 28th exhibition in the Gallery, which is a registered charitable institution funded solely by Judith Neilson.
‘A Blueprint for Ruins’, curated by David Williams, opens on 20 December 2023 and runs until 12 May 2024.
