ShanghART M50 is delighted to present the art project“The Immeasurable Everything” at STOP SPACE by Sun Xun, which opens on 9 June and will run through 8 July. The project set up a Sun Xun “studio” especially to present Sun’s daily working process.
Launched in the winter of 2019, the STOP SPACE project was based on Sun Xun’s feature-length narrative animation ‘Magic of Atlas’. STOP SPACE is nearly a representation of the Sun’s animation where the virtual images run through the space and echo each other. The physical space will change along Sun’s future work in the space. STOP SPACE is a fragment of the animated world that falls into reality, which is also a parallel black hole where the audiences can travel through the world of Sun’s creation.
“The Immeasurable Everything” echoes with Sun Xun’s solo in ShanghART WestBund space “An Infinite Journey ”in 2022, showcasing Sun Xun's new animation works. Over the years, Sun Xun has devoted himself to breaking away from the traditional way of creating animated films and trying to incorporate a variety of artistic styles. He emphasises the significance of painting in animation and suggests that artworks should not be limited to a single medium as the imagery of reality. Different mediums promote the enlightenment and collision of artistic expression at different levels.
In 2022, Sun Xun’s solo exhibition “An Infinite Journey ” presented the world in woodcuts of the six different painting mediums of the animation “Magic of Atlas”: Luo Cha. In the special project “The Immeasurable Everything”， in addition to new woodcuts from the world of “Luo Cha”, visitors will also get a glimpse of the works of ‘Jing Bang’, which is another world in the animation and take oil painting as the main medium. Designed by Sun, the works are distributed in the space, which breaks the habitual way of displaying the works, where audiences will enter a fantastic parallel world of the animation. During the exhibition, a special space will be set up in STOP SPACE as a temporary studio to showcase Sun Xun's daily working process.
