The exhibition consists of three overlapping parts, where the artist Zhang Jian-Jun explores the interactions between humans, nature and time through sculptures and charcoal strokes. “Human Traces” reflects the artist’s reflections on two timeless themes. Firstly, it explores the symbiotic relationship between human beings and nature. Then, it seeks to investigate the flow of time and traces left behind. The themes are similar to his previous works, where the past, present and future come together.
