M&O 2018 | Xiaodong Bian: Cocoon

Art&Craft / 5 Sep 2018

From 7 to 11 September, Xiaodong Bian will show his work 'Cocoon' in our showcase at Maison&Objet, Paris.

Studied BA in Environmental Art Design at Wuchang Institute of Technology, Xiaodong Bian has established the Raindrop Ceramic Design Studio in Jingdezhen. His work ‘Raindrop’ was collected by the Hong Kong Museum of Contemporary Art M+, and the work ‘Cocoon’ was acquired by the China Ceramic Museum.

The work uses the fine eggshell porcelain to present a moment that the silkworm cocoon is emerging from the chrysalis. The folds and the split part of the objects demonstrate the powerful force from a process of metamorphosis. It praises the beauty of nature, and also to indicate that the restriction at a particular moment in life is the reservation for the next wonderful bloom.
