#ART: Zhang Xiangxi Turns Hollowed TV Sets Into Miniature Worlds
Re-purposing the empty frames of discarded televisions, artist Zhang Xiangxi creates meticulously crafted dioramas inspired by “real life” in present day China.
Some of the miniatures closely resemble Zhang’s own personal living experiences such as his old workspace in Guangzhou, the workers’ dormitory he once lived in and his parent’s sitting room. More after the jump:
A mature person does not fall in love, he or she rises in love. Only immature people fall; they stumble and fall down in love. Somehow they were managing and standing. Now they cannot manage and they cannot stand. They were always ready to fall on the ground and to creep. They don’t have the backbone, the spine; they don’t have the integrity to stand alone.
A mature person has the integrity to stand alone. And when a mature person gives love, he or she gives without any strings attached to it. When two mature persons are in love, one of the great paradoxes of life happens, one of the most beautiful phenomena: they are together and yet tremendously alone. They are together so much that they are almost one. Two mature persons in love help each other to become more free. There is no politics involved, no diplomacy, no effort to dominate. Only freedom and love."
