Xu Bing: Where Does The Dust Itself Collect?
LMCC presented the first American installation of "Where Does the Dust Itself Collect?," a project by renowned Chinese artist Xu Bing that utilizes the dust that the artist collected from the streets of Lower Manhattan in the aftermath of 9/11. Recreating a field of dust across a floor surface, punctuated by the outline of a Zen Buddhist poem, the work explored the relationship between the material and the spiritual world, and the complicated circumstances created by different world perspectives.
The exhibit was on view September 8 through October 9, at the Spinning Wheel Building, 5 West 22nd Street.
Presented in partnership with Museum of Chinese in America.
