Using rising fog to convey the meaning of metempsychosis – the transmigration of the soul – it is clear that spiritualism, in particular Buddhism, is central to the work of young Chinese artist, Li Hui. Chinese philosophy also plays a key part in his work to, in this case the concept of transforming negativity into positivity, through the visual representation of a bandaged car wreck, beautifully illuminated by some 13,000 lasers…. a factor which, visually at least, offers a similarity to Moritz Waldemeyer’s work, his ‘Home Disco‘ featured by us early this year. Following it’s showings in Beijing, Busan and Vienna, Hui’s Transition – in cooperation with The Ministry of Art – will be showing in Mannheim, Germany’s Mannheimer Kunstverein gallery until 21st March.
