Born in 1978 in Chi Feng, Inner Mongolia, Zheng Lu graduated from the Sculpture Department of Central Academy in Beijing. He belongs to the generation of young Chinese artists that witnessed the rapid economic, social and cultural changes in China due to the Opening of China after the Reform.
Zheng Lu’s artwork, composed of stainless steel wires welded together, is characterised by a distinctive structure, which can be referred to as a “bubble structure”. Standing on the panoramic terrace of the Museum facing the sea, an impression of immateriality emerges. The empty body of the sculpture appears in the form of a shark fin floating on the water. He seems prepared to dissolve; it symbolises something transient and evanescent.
