The work “Blue approximately equal signs in between two continents” is a metaphor of sea. The wave-like pattern, similar to the approximately equal sign, is the sea wave and the symbol of a slight difference. Linked by sea, different mainlands seems perpetually in this approximately equal relation.
“The Grand Voyage” is a long term creative project founded by GUO Xi (b. 1988) and ZHANG Jianling (b. 1986), and supported by Imagokinetics Lab in Hangzhou. In 2014, the artist duo compiled and released 12 prophecies. And then they began a long voyage to witness the prophecies, collecting evidence and stories along the way to bring back to the mainland. The artists try to work on the edge of fiction and reality, presenting the audience with a narrative maze of works of art, objects and text.
