Hao Sheng on Qin Feng

Qin Feng responded to a monumental bronze vessel from the 11th century BC with his installation of 15 large-scale folding books and 12 hanging scrolls, painted in both ancient words and those of his own invention.

Watch as Hao Sheng, Wu Tung Curator of Chinese Art, discusses Qin’s emotional and cultural connection to the bronze vessel and how that bond deeply influenced the artist’s response to the object.
