b. 1963, works and lives in Shanghai
Neon Light
500(H)*500cm |  (in 42 pieces)
Edition of 3

“A Bunch of Happy Fantasy” is a neon installation and poetry written by the artist’s friend who has a complicated identity and magical experience. Shi Yong transfers the fantasy character of the poetry to a kind of reality illusion, thereby making it into neon installation, and invertedly displayed.  Shi Yong focuses a lot about fantasy and reality. In terms of ideology of consumerism, modernization of the city, daily behaviors and emotional feelings, he altered the ideas and created his works. This piece is materialized fantasy creation of words and materials. "Fantasy" is an unspeakable thought, and the work once again conveys the artist's subtle control of human perception and cognition. A bunch of inverted mumbling and sweet red lights makes the "happy fantasy" honest and touching.
