Artist Interview: Song Dong


Flash must be enabled to see the video player.

Song Dong’s work embraces performance, video installation, calligraphy, sculpture, and site-specific projects. His strength lies in a capacity to summon or convene opposites. He attempts to relocate our experience of art to some place between modernity and tradition; past and present; Taoist philosophy and conceptual art traditions, first manifested in the 1960s, that privilege the process of construction or attainment over the finished product.

Song was featured in the Walker Art Center’s exhibition How Latitudes Become Forms: Art in a Global Age.
