Bi Rongrong Ideal&Useless Space2 Acrylic on wal, Size: site-specific, 2019
This mural painting was originated from my painting “Ideal&Useless Space“. It was once transformed into a small bazaar space in a market, and the small shop became a useless but idealized painting space. Today the painting is extended to teh surface of a khaki-colored building that looks like a temporary house or office, creating a new real space. Whether this real space is closely related to the real environment, whether it can be used as a way to measure the environment is the topic that the series Ideal&Useless Space is trying to discuss.

When combined into sequences, the original contexts of the photographs were slightly shifted to build new narratives (usually humorous or insignificant by appearance) that could happen in the remote place Antarctica. They are mostly romantic or of a wry humor, concerning landscape, the figure in landscape, survival, and the amplification of silence or detail.
