In the end of November, 2015, after TanBo announced to the world that they won the first "Super Lion Award" of “Venize Biennale”in the art history, they spread an “online exhibition” with their awarded works in several editions of web news.
These works were created during the 56th Venice Biennale, and also in one and a half month after the closing day of the biennale. There are mainly two series of the works, “hacking high art” and “labeling ready-made”. The former one refers to the works that employs existing art works of Venice Biennale as backgrounds, like entering another performance piece with Tan Tan's performing, or putting two masks they bought into another artist’s mask installation… The latter style means that TanBo "claim" some objects or landscapes in Venice city, regarding them as their own art works, so as to inherit Duchamp’s “ready-made" in the reality of daily life but not in art spaces.
The awarded works of the Online Exhibition 2015 contain performance, photograph, video, installation, sound art.
***The original links of the online exhibition see below***
