14 sculptures from Chinese artists were participated in The 9th China-Korea Contemporary Sculpture Exchange Exhibition. Weaving from Long Xiang pursued different treatments on the same stone by sculpting and polishing. Body·Breath from Li He brought weaving of bamboo split into full play with emphasis on life.


Long Xiang and Li He both hoped to imply the interconnection between China and Korea through the weaving form while considering the policy of “One Belt And One Road”. As in the aspect of meaning, Li Huixings DA YUAN JING ZHI shared the same beauty and philosophy with Li Hes work, showing us the eternity of art.


Dong Shubings Measurement, Guo Hangs Waterlike, Tan Jianmings The Poet Xu Zhimo and Wu Haos Nocturne were all made of metal. Measurement measured the beauty and innocency of a sleeping baby, which coincided with the connotation of Waterlike, Highest good is like water. The Poet Xu Zhimo depicted a poetic temperament in freehand way, while Nocturne showed a musical rhythm in more realistic one.


Li Wanqius A Deng and Li Zhimins Shock were made of wood. Li Wanqiu used different timber splicing skills to sculpt an abstract figure, and Li Zhimin paid attention to digging the inner world by means of realistic description.


Cheng Xuetings Shade of the Mountain and Liu Chaos Whisper were of Chinese tradition. While the former one got idea from traditional landscape painting, sculpted a mountain image layer upon layer. And the latter used rice paper, just like a whisper to past, present, region and culture. Bao Landi expressed the same concern about Tibet as Liu Chao did by her Tibetan Antelope , the only difference was one focused on human and life, the other focused on nature and zoology.


Kong Jingcais Cage No.1 and Zhang Youkuis Collection were more like installations than usual sculptures. Struggling badmintons cabined in a cage implied the meaning of Chinese letter Nu vividly. But Zhang Youkui put “significant form” into practice, made his work  meaningful and thought-provoking.


Both Chinese sculptors and Korean sculptors revealed the eastern style of modern sculpture in The 9th China-Korea Contemporary Sculpture Exchange Exhibition. They carried on the research and creation out of sculptural shape, structure, material, space and color, considering manifestation and contemporary aesthetic concept.
