2013 Hangzhou Triennial of Fiber Art



On Nov 9, 2013, I visited Zhejiang Art Museum to see Hangzhou Triennial of Fiber Art Exhibition.

It was a lovely Saturday, the temperature was unusually high. I took Bus No.12 and got off at Wansongling(万松岭). During the way, i passed along the Long Bridge, a zigzagging bridge floating above the shimmering West Lake like a ribbon. it leads to a beautiful pavilion, which provides a romantic setting for photos. Not far away is the famous Leifeng Pagoda. To see Leifeng Pagoda at Evening Glow, one of the Top Ten Scenes of West Lake, this should be an ideal site.

Heading west, Zhejiang Art Museum is within walking distance. This area is heavily wooded, tranquil and relaxing. To draw visitors, this museum regularly hosts featured exhibitions almost every month, with theme spanning calligraphy, painting, fire art and seal engraving, etc.

I spent around 3 hours inside, entranced by its myriad fibre artworks whose beauty defies explanation. Below is one of my favorites:

(1) Feathers flowing in the middle air

(2) Its hall features an eye-catching deco on the wall. In the heart of the entry hall, there stand many balls and “mushrooms”. It reminds me of playground in a fairytale.

(3) Huge tapestries: four larger than life-size tapestries were presented in its spacious hall No 7. The minute I saw them, I was bewitched. They are so stunning, solemn, magnificent and mysterious.

This tapestry is called “Time”.

Figure out what is theme of this one.

The tapestry below is over 10 meters long. The scene is self-evident, while the theme is profound, controversial and thought-provoking: it depicts the whole life of a mother and his son. Someone interprets this puzzle-like artwork as a nice reminder of the greatness of mother, the fleeting joy in this secular world, the cruelness of time, the impermanency of life...in my opinion, it metaphors life as a journey, from birth to death, we are just passengers in this world...the space between these four major portraits are filled with typical daily scenes. It is like a miniature of life. At first sight, the scene of the mother delivers her child, it quite bold and too straightforward in my opinion. In addition, to see the withered mother and her aged son is sad. After puzzling over it for several minutes, I began to comprehend its originality and peerless craftsmanship. Featuring an eclectic blend of beauty and ugliness, this masterpiece reveals the turning points of our lives, in a natural and poetic way, and because of these unpleasant factors, this artwork owns some depth and tension.

(4) What is the theme of this one? Aren’t they look like babies within their mother’s wombs?

This scene is kind of scary and creepy enough. To make visitors’ hairs stand on end, audio sound is used. It reminds me of blood, which drips drop by drop, and converges into those collecting bags hanging in the air.
