Sample text

Sigg’s collection follows China through its vast series of reforms—reforms affecting the fate of one-fifth of humanity—and charges headfirst into various unfamiliar and unforeseeable possibilities. Chinese Contemporary Art in Dilemma and Transition 17 The more than two thousand objects in Mr. Sigg’s collection include painting, sculpture, installation, photography, video, projects, posters, paper cuttings, and more. The categorization of these works ranges from individual works to entire categories, from enormous installations to a single grain of sand.

These contemporary realities are causing the world to stare, and to gasp, eyes wide open, mouth agape. In the midst of this suffering, the Chinese people are learning loathsome realities, one after another. After struggling for the past one hundred years, we have returned to those inescapable foreign systems of thought, “science and democracy,”2 and as we share in the fruits of human culture, are discovering that we must also choke down other harsh realities. Problems Facing Foreign Architects Working within a Chinese Architectural Practice 3 Chinese architectural practice, aside from just barely managing to solve the basic demands for sheltering its people, has no spiritual substance or cultural legacy.

A builder’s grasp of space and of the possibilities for formulating space reveals his understanding and interpretation of himself and what lies outside himself. This is the recognition of limits, and a feeling of restraint. When people attempt to understand existence outside of humankind, including a prehuman age and what will be a posthuman age, puzzlement ensues. Such bewilderment, and the attempt to interpret it, are a dream from which it is impossible to extricate ourselves—the reality of existence is the reality of puzzlement.
