Scores of Landscapes by Du Kun

Mizuma Gallery is pleased to announce Scores of Landscapes, a solo exhibition by Chinese artist Du Kun.

The scrolls of landscape paintings in the series Scores of Landscapes look serene and ancient, as if they have frozen the history of thousands of years. But in fact, these landscapes themselves are pieces of nervous, sad, atonal, and even eccentric music.

Du Kun applies the logic of painting to compose music, and subsequently translates the various elements of the compositions into traditional Chinese landscape paintings. Finally, these painted ‘landscape compositions’ and their musical compositions are played out through a video, with both mediums corresponding precisely to each other, forming a new kind of music score.

Scores of Landscapes brings traditional Chinese painting and modern music together, where static and noise are simultaneously present in the artworks, with mutual influence and interdependency on one another – just like two people who speak different languages but find a special way to communicate with each other.

Scores of Landscapes, Du Kun’s first ever solo exhibition in Singapore, will run from 5 June till 18 July 2021.
