龙之根 DRAGON ROOTS

The origin is a piece of wood that has been copied and transformed first in bronze, then in plastic and in other kind of different woods, as well as glass, wax, porcelain, stoneware, 3D printing. The collection is growing and is an ongoing project. New roots are added ...

EARLY ONE MORNING Zhang Xuejiao returned with two more photographers, Liu Aiguo and Li Jun, and we all drove to Sanchazi, where the Great Wall of China is known as 'The Dragon's Back'. There, high above us, wreathed in mist on the hilltops snaked the back of the dragon. It was quite a struggle to make our way to the summit, but when we got there we called out with sheer exhilaration across the dizzying heights. As the echoes of our voices faded among the clouds I noticed a root beside my feet - a Dragon Root.

一 天的大清早,张雪蛟和另外两名摄影师--刘爱国和李骏--就来了。然后我们一起驾车到三岔子。这儿的长城俗称"龙背"。这里,龙的脊背环绕盘旋在高高的山 上,蜿蜒曲折。爬到 山顶的确颇费气力,到达山顶时,我们在高处大声呼唤着,欢声笑语洋溢在山中。随着我们的回声在云中渐渐消退,我看到自己脚边有一块树根--龙之根.
