Wenke Sun (Daniel)
Wenke Sun is a Ph.D candidate in the University of Southampton, UK. He devotes himself to the cross-cultural studies of China and the West, especially the understanding of space in art and philosophy. He attempts to find a common point between the space concept of Chinese landscape painting and the space in western philosophy. With regard to the subject of his practice, the relationship between heaven, earth, cloud, sea and human beings in nature always attracted his attention, especially when he is in the middle of it, he cannot help feeling a little sigh and pleasure. Indeed, for nature, people have always been in the “in-sein” space (Heidegger), that is a kind of dynamic, vivid space. The coupling and association of the mind and the external senses enable the “I” to begin to identify environments and circumstances he lives in, and to unfold in the “concentric circle of Sartre (my place, my environment, my neighbour)”. Regardless of this reality, the fact remains that his theory is in a certain conceptual enclosure, but he is willing to take the “I” in enclosure as a subject to think about the research and architecture regarding space. He is not limited to the choice of materials, but carries out his practice in a “medium” way, it will be presents by painting, installations, videos etc.
