In May 2008, just months before the Beijing Olympics, a devastating earthquake struck Sichuan Province, killing hundreds of thousands of people. Chinese artist 陳秋林 Chen Qiulin’s 漂浮Floating series responds directly to that catastrophe, adding a distinctly personal tenor to an event many only learned about through the media.

These floating human figures, sculpted in papier-mâché made primarily with paper scavenged from the detritus of the disaster, have the rough surfaces of industrial materials. At first glance, their texture, heft, and mass resemble that of concrete structures—a reference to the recent industrialization of the artist’s homeland.

Yet as the forms sway gently in space, suspended by nearly invisible pieces of fishing line, their apparent heaviness gives way to an essential weightlessness. The sculptures’ movements likewise suggest multiple possible readings, alternately evoking the graceful postures of dance and traumatic visions of bodies falling in space. Personal history drives Chen’s practice, but in creating such plays between opposites, she asks viewers to bring their own histories to their encounters with her work.

# Chen Qiulin 陈秋林 (陳秋林)
Chen Qiulin (b. 1975) is an emerging artist who is deeply concerned with the impact of urbanization in China. Her practice includes performance, photography, video, installation and most recently sculpture. She combines personal history with themes of demolition, migration, and transformation to express the reality for "ordinary people" living in China today. Born in Hubei Province, Chen Qiulin graduated from the Printmaking Department at the Sichuan Academy of Fine Arts and currently divides her time between Chengdu and Beijing.
