Li Jun: Wake up in Eternal Recurrence – On Liu Qinghe’s “Into Ashes”

The answer of “Into Ashes” is “unity”, and there is no exception. If the era is the “dust”, then the artist is also “dust”. If the era faces difficulties, then the artist is also faced with difficulties. If the era is “anxious”, the artist is also “anxious” and even more “anxious”. “If you ask me...

“Xu Bing”: The Art View and Action Logic of a Fatalist

Trying to summarize Xu Bing and his work as completely as possible is not an easy task at all.

Living Nature – Liu Shangying’s Action Painting

Liu Shangying prefers to paint in deserts, snowy mountains and highlands, such as the heart of Tibet and Inner Mongolia, where he can immerse himself into the wilderness and face the cruelty of nature. To me, it is not just painting from nature but putting his life to the test.

Poetics of the body – The statue and images of Geng Xue

Geng Xue’s film, ‘Mr.Sea’, combines multi-media techniques including painting, sculpture and ceramics to reinterpret this captivating mystic story, and create a fantasy world. While the scenes are imaginary the feelings are very real. Excitement, eagerness, loneliness, sadness, helpless...
