Jackie Chan’s efforts on sustainability on display

Updated 2017-04-06 09:30:45 Shanghai Daily

An exhibition about Chinese kung fu star Jackie Chan and his focus on environmental sustainability is currently running at the Shanghai World Financial Center.

Twenty-five artists, architects and designers have spent half a year to revive the values of these stage props for the exhibition “Eye of the World, Jackie Chan Treasures.”

The show features more than 40 artworks made of recycled items used in Chan's movies, including decorations, spotlights, camera lenses and other equipment.

One highlight shows two special-effect stages simulating “a mountain of swords” and the “sea of fire” where visitors can feel the exciting experiences of stunt men in Chan's movies.

The “mountain” and “sea” are made of wasted plastic bottles and sponges.

Lin Xudong, one of the artists, used an old camera and two theater seats to create an artwork named “Conversation.” Another of his works, “Dragon Horse,” created a large horse — Chan's zodiac sign — using spotlights that were used to make his earliest black-and-white movies.

Finishing the exhibition, visitors are invited to create their own artworks with abandoned items such as buttons and plastic bottles.

Date: Through May 20 (closed on Mondays and April 22), 10am-9pm

Address: 4/F, 100 Century Ave, Pudong

Admission: 40-80 yuan
