《The Keep》is No.7 of the Real Big City series

《The Keep》

The Keep,


Plough through blind haze 

with my razor sharp concrete bones 

Real Big City a fever face 

Mirrored in my skin of glass 

Deep down in the hysterical maze 

Dwells a viscid coexsistence

A desperate race

under my distinctive watch

 

Words from the artist:  

« The Keep » is one of the pieces that refers to a real place in Shanghai. The main police department of Shanghai is located on Wuning Lu/Wuding Lu. The sharp edges and straight lines of its dismal appearance erected among low community compounds makes it to one of the most impressive buildings of the city to me.

 

 
堡垒是真正的大城市系列的第七幅
 

《The Keep》

堡垒,

冲破烟雾的蒙蔽

用我锋利的混凝土骨头

真正的大城市有一张发烫的脸

映照在我的玻璃皮肤上

在歇斯底里的迷宫深处

沉湎于一种粘稠的共存

一场孤注一掷的比赛

在我特殊的注视之下

“« 堡垒 » 是真正涉及到上海一处真实地方的作品-位于武宁路/武定路的上海警察局。阴郁的建筑外观上布满了锋利的边缘和线条,直直地竖立在低矮的社区小院之间,对我来说,它是这座城市里令人印象最为深刻的建筑。”
