Corkin Gallery
7 Tank House Ln
Artists Chen Wei
Dong Wensheng
Sun Xun
Wang Qingsong
Zhou Xiaohu

Corkin Gallery presents photography and video
from two
generations of Chinese artists born during and just
after the
Cultural Revolution (1966–1976).

The meticulously staged, lush photographs of
Wang Qingsong,
the stunning and epic performance pieces by
Zheng Lianjie
which use the Great Wall as iconic backdrop, the
stop-action
films incorporating both the human body and
animated drawing
by Zhou Xiaohu and the deceptively formalist
photographs
and short films by Dong Wensheng are
accompanied here by
the work of younger artists Chen Wei and Sun Xun
(both born
in 1980). The photographs of Chen Wei, showing
enigmatic,
sinister staged dramas and the hand-drawn
animations of Sun
Xun will be exhibited for the first time in North
America.
