Nabuqi

Absent Paragraph

In the exhibition Absent Paragraph, the Chinese artist Nabuqi (1984) displays works from her most recent series A View Beyond Space, which consists of bronze and steel sculptures painted in vivid colours. Elements of an (urban) landscape loom up, architecture, a window, a staircase, a fence, hills. They pass slowly through your line of sight as if you are seeing them through the window of a moving car. An unknown place that nevertheless feels familiar, or somewhere that is known to you but from which you want to flee.

Nabuqi is an important representative of a generation of young Chinese artists who in their style are more personal and abstract. This is in contrast to the famous artists of the Chinese avant-garde, such as Ai Weiwei and Zhang Dali.
