Taichi Series-Single Whip, 1994, Bronze, 206 x 290 x 147cm

Exhibition date: 17 January 2015 – 31 May 2015 (extended)

This monumental outdoor exhibition will feature 15 of Ju Ming’s bronze Taichi masterpieces, set within the beautiful lush green and historic landscaped gardens of the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Ju’s monumental Taichi Series have previously been exhibited in the international cities of Paris, Berlin, and in the United Kingdom.

Since the 20th Century, the main thrust of development in Asian contemporary sculpture lay in the new interpretation of forms that interconnect modern civilization and its traditional culture. Ju Ming’s sculpture has its roots in the Chinese tradition and seeks to marry the traditional spirit of Chinese traditional painting and calligraphy with his distinct precise and poetic forms.

In his Taichi series, the concrete images of its human subjects exist in purely abstract blocks and volumes. Displayed outdoor, these sculptures work beautifully into their surroundings, creating an interaction with nature and pleasant engagement for audiences making this collaboration with the mature landscapes of the Singapore Botanic Gardens an ideal arrangement.

Exhibition Extended: We are pleased to announce that Ju Ming Taichi Series Monumental Outdoor Exhibition at Singapore Botanic Gardens is extended till 31st May 2015, due to the warm support both locally and overseas, for visitors who are unable to travel to Singapore before 16th April to view the exhibition.
