Coming straight from the 53rd Venice Biennale, Sheng Shan Shan’s “Open Wall” is a 20m long glass installation that recreates the Great Wall. The transparency of Sheng’s chosen medium reinterprets the iconic monument—each of the 2208 glass bricks delivers a powerful message on contemporary China’s newfound openness. Temporality, permeability and the question of outsider / insider status are themes especially pertinent in the context of the Expo.
