About

Part of a big old art project courtesy of Rolls-Royce, ScOP presets a brand new video work by Chinese contemporary artist extraordinaire, Yang Fudong. The film draws on classical tale The Foolish Old Man Removes the Mountains, which has been around since 4th century BCE and has inspired a host of artists over the years. One of the most notable was 20th century master of ink painting Xu Beihong whose work Yang Fudong reinterprets here. The result is a 46-minute long black and white film that's well worth a watch.
