CMA Fall2021 - seminar Week 5 Artist Talk - Prof. Hui Zhu: Art Practice & Immersive Scenery Based on Intellectual PropertyTime: Oct 4, 2021 09:30AM HKTForeword: “One blissful Saturday morning, ten years ago, I made a little figurine out of coiled wire and took a picture of it. This little coil man soon became a character in my animation and photography pieces and a companion in my travels. Over time, the coil man was given a name and a story and soon I was invited to show photo and animation works featuring my coil man. The exhibition experience inspired me to explore the space beyond the confines of the wall projection. I wanted the spirit and personality of the work to reach out into the exhibition space, rather than wait for the audience to grasp the artistic conception after they finished watching. The coil man has since participated in joint exhibitions, fashion shows, the Winter Olympics press conference and the China Service Trade Association’s art exhibit. In these exhibition, I have constantly explored the transformations of conceptual art in physical space while seeking deeper interactivity in this new mode of presentation.”About Hui Zhu:
