Huang Yongping: If There Were Such a Thing as a “Religious Monster”
Volume 14, Number 4, July/August 2015
by Yu Hsiao Hwei
Yu Hsiao Hwei's interview with Huang Yongping, whose first solo exhibition in Italy, Bâton Serpent, curated by Hou Hanru, took place at MAXXI museum, Rome, from December 19, 2014 to May 24, 2015. It consisted of a monumental thirty-metre-long aluminum skeleton of a snake, inspired by various stories and pagan mythologies that exist in different cultures and religions, hung high under the ceiling and twisting along a great part of the curved gallery, as well as several large-scale installations and sculptures.
