Hao Sheng on Liu Dan

Liu Dan responded to the renowned “scholar’s rock,” Honorable Old Man Rock, with his dramatic installation Illusions of the Old Man Rock I–X, featuring nine rock paintings with a 30-foot-long handscroll of an imagined landscape.

Watch as Hao Sheng, Wu Tung Curator of Chinese Art, highlights the many visual and imaginative qualities a single rock formation can have for the viewer as he discusses Liu’s creative process.
