Artists: Chen Leng, Li Hanwei, Lu Pingyuan
Curator: Chen Jiaying
Exhibition period: 2018.10.21-12.31
“Hunting Cycle” presents the works of three young artists: the huge image by Chen Leng stands in the wild as if an evil creature falling from the sky, the fictitious Heavy Weapons Company by Li Hanwei base on the artist’s own cultural memories and the story Lu Pingyuan inspired by the local environment. These different paths interpret the current humanistic contexts and create an outsider circumstance jumping out of the bustle of the city through MadeIn Park’s unique geographical environment.
Hunting refers to a state of “catch and hunt”. The hunter can be a consumer, a creator or any character waiting for the prey to appear. In this exhibition, the prey becomes industrial output, traditional culture, imagination, and even artists themselves. The process by which the hunter captures the prey is also controlled by the imaginary “prey”. Such a two-way relationship may stem from the reflexivity of technology/tools. The exhibition will present a complex and rich hunting relationship through images, texts, installations and such a surrounding environment.
