Gong Yuebin Life's Crossroad Opening

Comments on the opening of "Life's crossroad"

It is not overstatement that “Life's Crossroad” sculpture series by Gong Yuebin hit Sacramento audience with a powerful message.
Let's listen to what visitors say about the exhibition.
It is great, I can't express myself. It is sure it touches my heart.
I see what you saw in these pieces. I see the struggle and same time power in this whole exhibition.
I dare not to step on your exhibition ground because I see powerful lives everywhere, there is no one dead.
It is the first time I saw an exhibition like this. It is beautiful and powerful.
It is an amazing exhibition. I am touched very much!
Thank you so much for reminding us to protect our Mother Earth.
It is not your culture or my culture; it is a universal language that speaks in harmony and speaks with strength.
Christopher who is also an artist, walked out of the exhibition hall and expressed his wish to hug the artist who created the series of “Life's Crossroad”. He said “what a powerful exhibition! I can feel your emotion. You made me want to give up my painting because nothing can compare with what you did in your exhibition”.
How does an art exhibition touch an audience so much? Let's go into the exhibition and walked through the artworks to search for answers. The series of artwork is titled “life's Crossroad”. Gong depicted his visionary insight into this group of sculpture series. He wanted express his love of nature and life through his artwork. He intended to transform the message from nature to our human beings, the conversation between nature and human beings, between life and death. At entrance, Gong applied tunneled curtain to separate the natural light and black light inside. The series divided into five sections with the leading piece introducing his observation and thought. Passing the leading piece right after entered the curtained door, a group of taller pieces stand in front of you. They are “Body” section. Every piece stands for its own, representing different emotion, different status of life. There are struggle, survival, strength, power and agony in these pieces.
At your right side, a group of 8 pieces is called “resource”. Gong said this group represents seven continents surrounding our earth resource. Every continent is armed head to toe staring at our broken resource. Some visitors see “Christ dying in pain”; some see people are arguing or discussing over an issue. Gong pointed out that history warn us every war is the result of controlling over resource. He hoped to remind audience that we are living in same planet. Protecting our planet is everyone or every country's responsibility. There is no one who could govern this common resource.
At your left side, another 8 piece group represents “Spirit” with a brain shape piece in the center surrounded by seven other pieces. The brain with chain tied onto it is a metaphor of mental or spirit resource. In this group, all seven continents started to communicate with their conduit pipe even though the spirit was chained up. It sends message that there is no one could even depress a spirit power.
At same side of the “spirit”, standing in a small room is the first piece of “Lifeline”. It leads to other pieces upstairs. The beginning piece with a big hole in it Gong told me is representing a birth giving womb. A new life starts here and grows up through different life stages. There are three more pieces not in display due to the limited space. This group illustrates life in their different status. Free from control at beginning then, living under the control through their lives. The last piece can be described as an old man or an afterlife. In either way, you see the struggle or expression of life.
Inside next door, it is “Freedom”. Again, two more pieces are not showing because of the limited space. The showing piece is a human figure with wire fencing all over her. One female visitor was talking to herself “I don't see freedom because she is constrained inside”, then she seemed realizing “I understand, if you overcome a barrier, you are free; no freedom comes easy” .
Passing through another separating curtained door, Gong prepared his book, video, and some of the photo prints for visitors. One can either go directly to this room to learn more about artist first and then go back to look at the artwork, or you look at the artwork first to avoid you blindly follow artist's explanation which is not an attention Gong wanted to place on his audience. He wanted to expose his understanding of life to his audience, and give a key to audience for them to open their own door and search for their own interpretation of the artwork and their lives.
While first opening stirred a wave in Sacramento art field and community as a whole, Gong is preparing to develop the project to its fullest. Please stay tuned for Gong's new development on this project. Then his second project will be in display at the end of this year. For Gong Yuebin, there is no finishing to a project, he is always working on improving or developing his artwork.
