Currently on view at Klein Sun Gallery in New York, artist Li Hongbo has an exhibition of new and old work titled Tools of Study. Hongbo is known for his unconventional figurative sculptures made from thousands of sheets of flexible paper that twist and elongate in almost any direction, many of which take several months to complete. Watching them shift and warp from seemingly solid states into long worms feels like dropping acid in the sculpture room of the Louvre.
