Born in China and living in France, Huang Yong Ping has a clear view of the rapidly changing lines that demarcate East from West, tradition from modernity. House of Oracles, the first-ever retrospective of his work, muses on history, cultural identity, and globalization through 40 surprising - and sometimes jaw dropping - works ranging from a gladiatorial arena for insects to a 20-ton sand castle to a full-size airplane fuselage. Ping has been shown two previous times at MASS MoCA, first as part of Unnatural Science in 2000 and more recently with Dragon Boat, a major work of sculpture commission and fabricated by MASS MoCA as part of its Yankee Remix exhibition in 2004.
