In our schizophrenic world in search of re-definition, my work in general is based on the exploration of the relationship between sculpture and architecture, a natural interaction between volume and space, light and matter, between society and individual, program and fantasy. 

 

A vast matter indeed, but let’s say there in few words, that instead to enlarge a smaller piece and plonk it in the architecture, I prefer to understand and design the monumental presence in the space where the sculpture is destined. I define so this special exercise that monumental sculpture is in the world of Art. 

 

Here with “1/9”, I develop here a new sculptural language articulated on the superposition of simple geometric layers. Those layers carved out of Shanxi Black Granite

 design together a powerful and sinuous dragon which invest 20 meters long and 3 meters high through the architecture of the Earth Zone of the Union square shopping mall; THE ELEMENTS. 

 

The dragon is a symbol of protection and power, and the title is a tongue-in-cheek reference to one of the nine dragons of Kowloon (Gau Lung!)
