Magician Space Artist Timur Si-Qin's new 3D sculpture "Juniper" now is showing at group exhibition "Land of the Lustrous" UCCA Dune. The exhibition will last unitl September 8th. 


The exhibition encompasses works by ten artists both in and beyond China. Each artwork in this exhibition relates—materially or formally—to the figure of the stone, approaching this age-old object from novel perspectives. Participating artists weave their individual concerns together, drawing from, and sinking into, ancient collective memories. The proposition that stone "is alive" results in several ancillary questions—is humankind the measure of the universe? Is it shortsighted to base values solely on human needs, universalizing our limited ways of understanding the world? As urbanization and modernization progress, will such nearsighted forms of knowledge bring about a corresponding rise in alienation? After all, only humans can consume, produce, and create surplus value in the world of capital; in this game, "nature" can serve only as dead material.

Timur Si-qin strived to imagine models and rubrics that are separate from "nature itself". Si-qin’s "Juniper", produced in 2019, is a kind of billboard for the Anthropocene, advertising the spatial and temporal concepts attendant to this new epoch.




About the artist

 

Timur Si-Qin (b. 1984) is an artist of German and Mongolian-Chinese descent who grew up in Berlin, Beijing and in a Native Indian community in the American Southwest. Growing up in a multi-cultural environment helped inform Si-Qin’s unique sensitivity to the relationship between nature and culture. Now living in New York, Si-Qin has become a leading figure in a Post-internet generation of artists who reference new developments in science and technology to challenge the separation between the human world and the biological laws of the natural world. 


Exhibitions include major solo shows at: Magician Space, Beijing (2018/2015); Spazio Maiocchi, Milan (2018); Société, Berlin (2018/2015/2013/2011); Art Basel Hong Kong (2018); Konfuzius Institut, Berlin (2017); Team Gallery, Los Angeles (2016); Art Basel Statements, Basel (2016). He also participated in the 9th Berlin Biennale in 2016.
