A deep interest in literary and cultural theory has led Shi Qing to create meditations on history and ideology in surprising material forms. In this series “Utopian Mountain,” cardboard boxes are transmuted into architectural forms supplemented by makeshift volcanoes. His ongoing concern with the intellectual ideas undergirding an ideology of progress—both in art and in society more generally—have proven fertile ground for formal exploration.
