“You take a picture for me” series

conceptual photograph, digital, color.

This series of selfie is a group of conceptual photographs with my acting, from 2014 to 2016.  I have been photographing more than 70 kinds of social identity. In the process of creating this group of photos, I exchanged roles with the subjects,let them stand in front of the camera, and I played them through the lens. In a word, in the real scene through the layout an ingredient plays to complete this works. Shooting prototype and “photographers ”are post-90s who mainly encountered in the life of the author has a variety of social roles. When a photographer in the usual sense becomes a new target and press the shutter, identity swapping and blurring, I think there may be a new possibility.

  • 你为什么做艺术?


  • 你觉得怎样才是一个成功艺术家?


  • 你对现在的“当代艺术圈”有话要说吗


  • 是什么让你决定参加venize双年展2017特别项目?

“Trans-Bordering-Art”,发起人和参与的艺术家在共同完成一个艺术作品,这本身就是一场史无前例的艺术行为,我们正尝试着一起跨越“In and Out”,“职业与非职业”、“官方与非官方”的界限,突破一系列界限后,“人人都可以是艺术家”变成了现实,可见这个过程是令人期待的。

  • 请根据个人经验推测一下,怎样才能被威尼斯双年展艺术大展选中(官方单元而非平行展)?


  • Why do you do art?

Because I like to dream, nonsense and toss. Art just let me play with myself every day very happy.

  • How to become a successful artist?

I think the free state of creation and the no criterion is better than a standardized success.

  • Do you have some words to say to the Art circle?

Less nihilism, less fuss, more social reality and the flavor of the times on the artistic practice, more integration and possibility in a few different categories of art. To eliminate the impetuous ,I hope to be able to form a good environment for the arts.

  • What made you decide to attend this special programme of Venize Biennale 2017?

"Trans-Bordering-Art", the initiator and the participating artists are working together to complete a work of Art, this is an unprecedented act of Art. We are trying to cross the boundaries of "In and Out", "career and non career", "official and unofficial". After a series of boundaries, "everyone can be an artist" becomes a reality, we are very much looking forward to this process.

  • How to be selected by the official program of Venice Biennale (La Biennale di Venezia)?

First of all, the work should inherit the cultural gene of individual national concept. Secondly, combine western artistic language and individual national concept to create a new stuff. Do not blindly cater to the western art standards. It is important for everyone to find the uniqueness view to create.
