Chinese furniture scattered across a floating pontoon in St Katharine Docks could depict the scene of a rather quirky living room.

In fact, artist Xiang Yang’s first solo show Ultra Architecture - East Meet West strives to show the interaction between Chinese and Western art, philosophy and architecture.

Inspired by an emotional attachment to a “dreaming house” in his childhood, it includes cabinets, closets and doors that were de constructed and re-built to create a large, open space.

It combines antique items with silk thread installations and was transported to Wapping by container ship from Tianjin, in China.

It will be on show until October 28.

Marina director at St Katharine Docks William Bowman said: “We are delighted to host Xiang Yang’s first solo show in London.

“As business, travel, tourism and cultural exchange increases between London and Beijing, his work is a great symbol of ‘East meets West’.

“This important artistic event will add another exciting chapter to St Katharine Docks’ rich cultural history.”
