Gao Shiqiang is one of the recent “scholarly” artists in the field of Chinese contemporary art. Gao’s work, which includes installations, photographs and experimental films, carries a sense of broadness and complexity towards the reflection and bodily experience of daily life—such qualities are rarely found amongst his peers. His practice also hints at a systematic way of conceiving works. His recent pieces move away from the narrow confines of competing ways of thinking, and in turn, he brought a way of conceiving Chinese history and culture to new heights.

Dong Wensheng’s work also freely crisscrosses between installation, photography and experimental films. His work frequently includes elements of Chinese tradition with a strong link to characteristics related to the region of Jiangnan. His highly individualistic pieces often transpose the viewer into a paradoxical realm that hovers between the traditional past and the contemporary present; Dong is interested in infusing his spectators within a state of tragic psychological sadness.

Gao Shiqiang is an active young artist who has participated at numerous important Asian art exhibitions, such as the Shanghai Biennale, the Guangzhou Triennial, the Gwangju Biennale, and the Chinese Art Triennial Exhibition. Dong Wensheng has exhibited at a number of important international institutes, such as the P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center (New York), the Kunsthalle Wien (Vienna), and at the Institut Valencià d'Art Modern (Valencia).

This exhibition is their first solo shows in Beijing that also presents a number of their recent pieces.
