Joan B. Mirviss Ltd
39 East 78th Street
Bingyi will premier new ink paintings from her site-specific Taihang Mountains series in which she explores the Northern Song landscape tradition.
An artist, architectural designer, curator, cultural critic, and social activist,
Bingyi (冰 逸, b. 1975, Beijing) has developed a multi-faceted practice that encompasses land and environmental art, site-specific architectural installation, musical and literary composition, ink painting, performance art, and filmmaking. Adopting a non-anthropocentric perspective and channeling nature’s creative agency, her work is centrally concerned with the themes of ecology, ruins, rebirth, and poetic imagination. After pursuing university-level studies in biomedical and electronic engineering in the United States, Bingyi earned a Ph.D. in Art History and Archeology from Yale University in 2005 with a dissertation on the art of the Han Dynasty.
This exhibition will be displayed in tandem with Kondō Takahiro: Making Waves at Joan B Mirviss LTD.
