Winter Landscape, Huang Xi via Interview/Terence Koh
Winter Landscape, an installation by Tianjin-based artist Huang Xi, is on view twenty-four hours a day until January 31, through a peep hole in the window of Terence Koh’s Asia Song Society Gallery, on Canal Street in New York’s Chinatown. Koh describes Xi’s piece as a “joyful winter landscape” based on Caspar David Friedrich’s “Winter Landscape With Church” (1811), but without the “religious” part. At night a red light glows from ASS’s store front window which has been treated to look as if frosted over in a storm.
