Counting Blessings documents Shen Xin’s father, Shen Daohong, who is also an artist, in his search for authentic images of Tibetan people and culture to use in his own practice. Deeply influenced by the Russian realist painters like Ilya Repin, the father sets the goal of his career to achieving realism through innovative Chinese ink practice, and depicting Tibetan is one of his main subject matters. In the film, Shen conducted interviews around the photo archive the father keeps, and set out performative tasks for the father and his friends. The film also reveals Shen’s reality in maintaining a paralleled practice in order to be financially self-sufficient and to obtain the “privilege” of western art education.

In recent years, Lu Pingyuan focused his practice on the writing of stories related to the art world and henceforth excels in this field. Partly collected partly imagined, the texts present enigmatic narrations where protagonists are artists or backdrops are exhibitions. These writings take the form of factual evidence while manifesting an art of the imagination. As a work in the exhibition or an exhibition in the work, the stories create a mise-en-abime and offer a new perspective on art in general. Mostly presented in a minimalistic way directly printed and pinned on the wall, the texts are occasionally further developed into an ambitious project through installations and mise-en-scene. Prop or work, the object takes then a new dimension multiplying layers of readings.

Wang Sishun's recent series “Apocalypse” combines geology and anthropology, referring to various ethnic groups and identities as well as their underlying spiritual and personal meanings. Connecting the history of mankind with the profound cosmic time outside of mankind through natural pictographic raw stones, the works present a kind of savage wildness and divinity, as if everything has been predicted long ago.

In "Metal Language" series, Xu Zhen® extracts sentences from political cartoons in their original fonts and reproduces them using metal chains on a mirroring surface.


The choice of metal shackles reflects the ambiguity of history itself: it is a treasure and a burden. The “bling” of the chains along with the many exclamation marks evoke the chaos of a graffiti wall, where the many individual statements blend into one bigger picture.
