Fou Gallery is pleased to present New York based artist Meng Du’s solo exhibition, Meng Du: The Climb, The Fall from June 25 through August 7, 2016. This exhibition will showcase a selection of glass works by the artist that address profound notions of personal moments and memories. The opening reception will take place on June 25, 5-8 PM.
The title “The Climb, The Fall” (Chinese title: 退火 (tuì huǒ) ) refers to the glassmaking process of “annealing” in which hot glass is slowly cooled to relieve internal stresses after the shape has been formed. Glass which has not been annealed is liable to cracking or shattering when subjected to a relatively small temperature change or mechanical shock. Following the concept of “more haste, less speed” behind “annealing,” Meng Du involves her philosophy and understanding of life with her artworks and related project Tui Glass Projects thoroughly.
