OCAT Shenzhen recently opened a new exhibition for veteran calligrapher Wang Dongling, who is known for his tendency to create large-scale, monumental works using his experimental “chaos script” (乱书) writing style.

For The Bamboo Path, Wang applied chaos script to stalks of bamboo, which are “planted” in OCAT’s warehouse-like space in Shenzhen’s OCT Loft art zone to create an artificial forest. On each stalk is carefully painted a short text extolling the virtues of bamboo itself, a material historically near and dear to Chinese artists and literati.
