Liang Shaoji: Sha Sha Sha

Finished Ended on Sat May 6, 2017
ShanghART Shanghai
Bldg 10, 2555 Longteng Da Dao, near Fenggu Lu


Liang Shaoji has been working with silkworms for 28 years. Now, he presents a series of new works in a solo called Sha Sha Sha - that is, 沙> (sha), the sound generated by silkworms while feasting on mulberry leaves; 纱 (sha), the pronunciation of the texture of silk; and 砂 (sha), meaning sand which is a critical component of one of the works on show here. He has the silkworms interact with his sculptural works to literally 'wrap' them in gossamer-light threads. Recommended.
