Gu Benchi is a self-taught artist who started his career as a designer. He uses one of the most innovative materials in his practice being polyester thread that he weaves into splendid three-dimensional wall hangings, sculptures and site-specific installations. For the Time Line exhibition he will create a specially designed installation to transform the window of 10 Chancery Lane Gallery. The complex lattices of colour and structure are controlled via a mathematical model and activate the vitality of the line itself.
