AVENUE OF THE ARTS | THE KIMMEL CENTER
THE PLAZA. Last night Taiwanese artist Long-bin Chen was on hand for the SEI Spring launch of the new sculptural series “The Composers”. Long-bin Chen cleverly refurbishes the devolving ubiquitousness of traditional books into an alternate multi-media cultural currency.
Musical sculptures of Western Composers (Bach, Beethoven, Brahms,Chopin, and Verdi) at first, appear to be made out of noble materials (hardwood, marble or stone) but upon closer inspection is hard and paperback volumes, newsprint, and recycled paper that artist Long-bin Chen has ingenuously transformed.
