About the exhibition

FEI Gallery is an art organization that has been established in the Zhusigang Neighborhood of Guangzhou for ten years. It has always bore in mind the idea of displaying arts beyond the White Cube. And contemporary artist Song Dong holds the belief that there is no border between art and life. In Song’s eyes, every one’s home can be regarded as a museum, and the neighborhood composed of millions of homes can be viewed as the Borderless Museum. Song decided to put the idea that has been haunting his mind for so many years – “redefining the wall” – into practice in FEI Gallery.

Therefore, FEI Gallery and Song Dong launched a special public art project this May, based on the shared belief. This December, as the first art piece of the project, the Borderless Wall will be completed. It is even more coincidental that the material language Song is going to use in “The Borderless Border” is recycled doors and windows. While what makes Fei a Fei (literally meaning “door”or “window” in Chinese), owes exactly to its name – it is the doors and windows that lead us to unlimited possibility for “limitless is borderless”. This special wall not only serves as the beginning of the art project, but also refines people’s common concept of wall.
