“ARTificial Garden” is a group exhibition held in celebration of the sixth anniversary of the Shanghai World Financial Center, displaying works by four groups of artists. The show brings together different mediums of art such as painting, sculpture, digital art, and spatial installations.

There is “Artificial Nature”, created jointly by PRISM DESIGN and Office339, a linear and yet cuboid installation work. Presenting the maternal body – the foundation of life – as well as expressing that instantaneous moment of life being born through deploying countless lines and a metallic skeleton, the work provides each viewer with the apparent sensation of an enveloping and immanent experience.

“Life imitates art far more than art imitates life” the British poet Oscar Wilde once quipped. The phrase meant not to negate life and nature but rather was aimed at reminding us how art is an even better means of exploring nature. Through the sensations this exhibition and this space impart on viewers, it is our hope that everyone will have the chance now and hereafter to make use of art in further excavating nature (the gardens) in the metropolis.
