TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – The world-renowned Taiwanese sculptor Ju Ming unveiled
his new collection, the “Living World Series – Ballet (人間系列－芭蕾),” which captures the strength and beauty of ballet dancing through 29 pieces of stainless steel sculptures.
The event on May 25, which opened with performances by the Lan Yang Ballet Troupe (蘭陽芭蕾舞團), saw Ju Ming donate one of the artworks to a charity auction with proceeds going to promote children’s art education.
According to the Ju Ming Museum, the new series seeks to inject innovative elements and a dose of modernity into the sculptor’s interpretation of femininity. Each piece represents a unique ballerina who swings, jumps, and turns in a flowy sequence of moves and ultimately achieves a balanced posture precisely captured by the craft of sculpting, reported CNA.
