What Happened in Dragon Year

Artist: Sun Xun
installation, painting | Wall painting and video installation | 2014

For the large wall drawing created for this exhibition, Sun Xun focuses on the Huangpu River, with cargo boats plying the waters by day and by night. The workers going in and out of the factories throughout history let the surrounding artworks come alive amid this immense scene of reality conceived within the artist’s mind – breathing life even into the contemporary social factory, innumerably complex, endlessly chaotic, but also pregnant with vitality.
