About the Artist

Yu Fan is a well known Chinese artist who works with sculpture. His installation Horses is made up of four galloping horse sculptures, each with a different pose, installed at the east gate of the Shanghai Art Museum, creating a sense of space-time inversion. Through this work, the artist attempts to stimulate viewers imaginations and stimulate old memories of the building housing the Museum. The work also invites viewers to interact with the public space. With these horses running on the track once again, people can’t help but ask: Do the horses play the role of hosts or guests? (Note that the site of the museum used to be a racetrack.) The viewers and horses all seem to be transported back in history, becoming a part of a 'surprising dream'
