inkwings: Liu Zhan, Kuang Jun and Tan Tianwei (Unmask Group)
Unmask started out with a mask on: the group’s three members wanted to stay anonymous. But in China’s name-driven art scene, that was bound to be difficult. Liu Zhan, Kuang Jun and Tan Tianwei were more successful with another aim, to present their works as commodities, marked by “industrialisation, mass production, trendiness”.
Xing Danwen 邢丹文, Urban Fiction
“…”Urban Fiction" is playful & fictitious - wandering between reality & fantasy. All the figures in this series are acts of me, playing different characters. This creates another paradox: “I” am real but at the same time “I” am unreal. The figures act out totally imaginative roles & fanciful stories, staged within the maquettes, their plots invented by me & visualized for these spaces."
