To commemorate its 60th anniversary, the Hong Kong Museum of Art (HKMoA) is proud to present one of the celebratory projects A 10,000-Year View, a site-specific art installation by the internationally renowned artist Zheng Chongbin. Inspired by the new spatial perspective and the scenery of the HKMoA, the artist meticulously makes use of light and shade, multimedia images and mixed media to connect the views of Victoria Harbour and the HKMoA interiors from the past, the present to the future by layers of artistic sceneries created, and to juxtapose with the Museum collection on display in harmony. This creates dialogues across time, space, mediums and cultures, curating a world of contrasts at sight, perception and bodily experience.
Zheng Chongbin graduated from Zhejiang Academy of Fine Arts in 1984 and obtained a Master of Fine Art degree from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1991. He is now based in San Francisco and Shanghai. For many years Zheng has continuously and systematically developed the intersections and extensions among traditional Chinese ink (and the contemporary nature of ink painting), modern western art and new media. Carrying out the concept and new experience of light and space from his art in California, he develops a space filled with perception stimulations by making use of senses of mass, space, light and shade found on-site. This forms a unique and distinctive style.
