This catalogue was created in conjunction with Su Zhiguang’s first solo exhibition with Chambers Fine Art. For this exhibition Su Zhiguang’s delicately crafted works were created using dust found throughout Beijing. Su widens the thematic material of his work to include not only the Chinese imagery that inspired his Dust Manual but botanical illustrations from the iconic Hortus Eystettensis of Basilius Besler first published in 1613. In addition there are references to European architectural manuals and western motifs such as the Adam and Eve of Albrecht Durer.
