Chinese Perspective – Creative Dioramas by Zhang Xiangxi
Zhang Xiangxi has turned old TVs into an impressive work of art. His series “Chinese Perspective” gives us glimpses of the artist’s life. He creates extremely detailed dioramas of scenes from his life inside the old television sets. Zhang has replicated his parent’s sitting room, the workers’ dormitory he once lived in, his work space in Guangzhou, and the interior of a train. Everything was perfectly scaled down: chairs, tables, suitcases, and even bits of rubbish.His work is so realistic that a look at his work will make you think the TV was turned on. He said: “I like to closely observe daily life and work out how to make things.”
