about this work

Sound Absorber (Silkscreen Print on Mirror) (2015) was produced to accompany the first solo UK institutional project by Chinese artist Zhang Ding, entitled Enter the Dragon, presented by the ICA, London and K11 Art Foundation in 2015. Sound Absorber consists of a gold silkscreen image printed on the back of a mirror. Showing a close-up of a sound absorbent material, this is a detail of artwork that hangs on the mirrored walls of Zhang Ding's installation.

“During the Orbit of Rock,
artificial texture was absorbing aggressive sound;
In the kind of need,
flame was burning out with the gold;
What the cooling-down is,
no longer brilliant but still fascinating.”

about Zhang Ding

°1980, Gansu (CN) - lives and works in Shanghai (CN)

Zhang Ding's practice is mainly presented through his solo projects, which includes video, installations, paintings and live performance. His works play on ideas of sensory perception and will, constructing absurd scenes full of contrast, often creating metaphors layered with societal references. These may be seen as a series of deconstructed mise-en-scenes, or as an environmental sculpture of twisting and merging emotional atmospheres.

Zhang Ding has had numerous solo exhibitions, including shows at Shanghai Museum of Glass, Shanghai; and ICA, London. At the Armory Show New York in 2014 Zhang Ding had a solo in the Focus Section. His work has been shown in several group exhibitions at venues such as The Contemporary Art Museum in Houston; UCCA, Beijing; Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art, Oslo; and Kunsthalle Bern. He also participated at the Biennale of Lyon in 2013. His work is represented in many important public collections, such as Astrup Fearnley Museum, Oslo; Multimedia Art Museum, Moscow; and DSL Collection, Beijing.
