【Special Lecture】Song Dong + Yin Xiuzhen : The Way of Chopsticks

Global Art Practice MFA Course would like to warmly welcome you to our special lecture “The Chopsticks” by Song Dong + Yin   Xiuzhen artists from China.
Starting in 2001, Song and Yin began their ongoing project titled “The Way of the Chopsticks”. They decided on the central motif of   chopsticks because of their symbolism—as discrete objects coming together to function as a pair. When Song and Yin work on the   project, they produce their works in isolation, never seeing the other’s works until they install in the exhibition space. Their works   reference geography, urban architecture, Chinese mythology, and quotidian life.
