Ashes to Ashes: Yan Yongliang
A gigantic cigarette including the usual ash top is hanging from the ceiling of a museum. A cigarette, okay. We know cigarettes. But wait: Who takes a closer look at the installation “Cigarette Ash Landscape” made by Yan Yongliang will see that we’re not talking about a standard cigarette ash – but about tiny and lacy skylines made from paper!
Where the ash is falling down on the floor there is another pile of pictures of well-known capitals and cities of the world, surrounded by a bunch of happily blooming flowers. The artists seems to have acquired the steady hand during his studies: He loves traditional chinese art and calligraphy. We are thrilled! (Pssst…We have found the guy and his art at artschoolvets)
