Honolulu Biennial 2017

[Participation fee]
Hawaii-based Andrew Binkley travelled throughout China and lived the life of a monk in Thailand for several years. His artworks fuse the natural elements of the Pacific Islands and the religious teachings of Buddhism. “Stone Cloud”, an inflatable boulder suspended high in the air, embodies contradictory qualities of solidity and fluidness, lightness and heaviness. The startling presence of the stone escapes our habitual understanding of the material world, creating a sense of transcendence.
