Shi Jianmin is a Chinese sculptor, born in Xi’an in 1962. First, he graduated in the Academy of Fine Arts and then from the Central Academy of Applied Arts. Currently he lives and works at Beijing, China.

Over the years, he has had several exhibitions, in small galleries or in big museums, including at the Xin Dong Cheng Space for Contemporary Art in  Beijing, at the Museum of Art & Design in New York, etc. At the moment, we can see his work at the Gabrielle Ammann Gallery  in Cologne.

Gabrielle Ammann Gallery presents a collective exhibition “View to China” until the April 5th.

This exhibition shows a selection of works from internationally renowned contemporary Chinese artists. There are litographies from Lin Tianmiao, porcelain figures from Danful Yang, even conceptual works created by Beijing based art-design collective Wolfs Jung and, as we already said  objects by Shi Jianmin. There, he presents a series of contemporary pieces in stainless steel: the “Stool / Coffeetable”,  the “Accordion”,  the “Gold Brick” etc.

In Shi Jianmin’s  pieces, the notion of “furniture” becomes less important than the artistic concept.

They are “the combination of different elements and different feelings – visual, stylistic, etc – and what could be described as an intangible feeling is created”.

Shi Jianmin’s work went through a variety of phases.

We can notice his attraction for tradition but mainly a predilection for contemporaneous. The way he works in steel combined with his special attention with details, makes his work truly expressive and unique.

If you enjoyed Shi Jianmin’s work  take a look at this one from Vicent Dubourg.
