Hong Hao

Hong HaoHong Hao (Beijing, 1965) es diplomado por la Academia Central de Bellas Artes de Beijing. En la serie “My Things”, el artista presenta trabajos fotográficos compuestos por miles de objetos colectados a lo largo de más de veinte años.

A fin de reagruparlos en obras atemporales, cada objeto es escaneado y luego dispuesto en un gigante montaje “patchwork”. Estos micro universos invitan al espectador a inmiscuirse en la intimidad de Hong Hao descubriendo todos los objetos que han compuesto su vida.

A través de estas obras se puede distinguir claramente la evolución cultural que ha vivido el artista y la omnipresencia del comunismo en los soportes culturales, así como los cambios en el diseño de los objetos a partir del comienzo de su experiencia.nocromáticos que representan íntimamente temas relacionados con su hija y sus amigos. La esencia de su pintura gira al rededor de la emoción privada.
