Lu Pingyuan, “Shadow of the Shadow”, 2021

New acquisition

Published on: 22 November, 2021

Lu Pingyuan, “Shadow of the Shadow”, 2021

“Shadow of the Shadow” is inspired by the physical characteristics of the artist character “Barbabeau” in the animation “Barbapapa”, whose body can transform freely. The artist then created this large sculpture installation using black light clay. This work is composed of more than 400 sculptures of various shapes that are derived from familiar forms within the experience of cultural and art history.
Lu Pingyuan believes that the plasticity of light clay is directly related to the physical characteristics of “Barbabeau”. This method of clay sculpting is also a fundamental method in his earliest understanding of sculpture. He regards these black and anthropomorphic sculptures as shadows, and names this group of sculpture installation “Shadow of the Shadow.”
