Shi Jindian Biography

Shi Jindian’s works are based on destruction and reconstruction of real objects. His works, such as "Beijing Jeep BJ-212", are based on industrial products with particular significance in social, political and cultural life, as well as symbols of the times. The transformation of this kind of strong symbolic objects from materiality to unfamiliarity eventually generates an unexpected sense of fascination. This time-consuming and calm, meditation-like creative process and the manpower involved are the artist’s total objection to the industrial products destructed. To him, all the initiatives might merely be ignited by the desire to a change in traditional artistic language of sculptures, but in terms of the cultural aspect, it is an effective means to execute the analysis of cultural symbols.
