About Shi Jindian’s Works 关于师进滇的作品

Shi Jindian’s works are based on destruction and reconstruction of real objects. His works, such as “Beijing Jeep BJ-212”, are based on industrial products with particular significance in social, political and cultural life, as well as symbols of the times. The transformation of this kind of strong symbolic objects from materiality to unfamiliarity eventually generates an unexpected sense of fascination. This time-consuming and calm, meditation-like creative process and the manpower involved are the artist’s total objection to the industrial products destructed. To him, all the initiatives might merely be ignited by the desire to a change in traditional artistic language of sculptures, but in terms of the cultural aspect, it is an effective means to execute the analysis of cultural symbols.

Shi Jindian was born in 1953 in China’s Yunnan Province. He studied at the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute, and currently lives and works in Chengdu. Shi Jindian’s works can be found in the collections of prominent museums and organisations including The Montpellier Contemporary Chinese Art Biennale, France, Seoul Art Museum, Korea and The White Rabbit Contemporary Chinese Art Collection, Australia.


师进滇在1953年出生于中国云南省,于四川美术学院就读,现工作及生活于成都。师进滇的艺术创作经历了从传统雕塑到现代艺术转变的过程,这种转变让我们看到一个具有持续创造力的艺术家的“有机知识分子”特质。也正是因为这种持续的创造成果,使师进滇成为今天中国现当代艺术领域独具特色和价值的艺术家之一,备受艺术业界重视。他的作品也被国际著名公共机构收藏﹐包括法国蒙彼利埃-中国当代艺术双年展﹑韩国首尔艺术博物馆收藏及澳大利亚白兔美术馆 。
