"YUAN-Dialogue"(YUAN chinese meaning:Source) is a work exchange exhibition held by contemporary Chinese and Japanese artists at the Sasaki Museum of Art in Sendai, Japan.
When the curator Zhou Xiongbo found me to design posters and albums, I found his recent works written on various paper scraps, one of which was posted on the "SF Express"(China's most famous express delivery company) carton with "China Post" This work has nothing to do with posters, but the paper cover is particularly attractive to me for several reasons: these are two labels that are sufficient to represent China's logistics. The paper cover is printed with advertising words such as "transnational" (including national fonts), and labels The words on it happen to be the curator's name, phone, and address. So I designed the paper as a "carton" with a gap in the middle, like an open carton. The inscription for the exhibition came out of the gap in the carton. The other text information was placed on the label and the corrugated paper with the torn paper between. In this way, a courier carton was "sent" to Japan. This is the vision of this exhibition.
When printing, especially look for the material that is close to the texture of the carton and perform it on the floor. When the curators and Chinese artists went to Japan to set up with a heavy box of picture albums and posters, the vision attracted the attention and attention of local Japanese artists.
