'Recycled China' opens in Beijing
Thomas Schmidt, AU class of 2009, writes: “For the last year I have been collaborating with my friend Jeffrey Miller (AU class of 2009) on a project documenting our lives in China through material experiments. The work produced for this exhibition (“Recycled China”) was made at an aluminum foundry in northern Beijing following a recent show at The Ullens Center for Contemporary Art. While normally producing parts for machinery, this factory agreed to let us use the site for a series of material experiments with the aim of producing art objects and architectural tile.”
“Recycled China” opens July 6 and runs through July 24, 2012 at the Matthias Küper Gallery in Chao Chang Di, 249-3 Change Di, Airport Service Road, Chaoyang District, 100015 Beijing. For more information, go to the gallery Website at: www.galerie-matthiaskueper.de.
