“Dedicated to money makers” presents works by Li Ming, Lin Ke and Yang Junling. Three artists, three friends, who have been living and creating together, sharing their thoughts and ideas, since the first time they met in 2006 at the China Academy of Art.
Their works often focus on various aspects of their daily life, random objects and leisure games. Their videos, partly improvised, present them alternatively in the role of the artist or the subject (filming and being filmed), and reflect a tacit understanding, individual opinions and spontaneous attitudes.
In his videos, Li Ming (born in 1986) emphasizes basic, almost instinctive, human feelings and body-related details, or narrates semi-fictional stories taking place in a daily life environment. Lin Ke’s(b.1984) minimal installations propose new perspectives as well as insolite functions to common materials or objects, giving them a new definition. Videos and installations of Yang Junling (b.1983) present bewildering, unexpected scenes in an ordinary background.
This exhibition constituting MadeIn Space’s first exhibition will be held from September 10th to 30th, 2010.
