Wang Jin (王晉) B. 1962, Tianjin, China

Wang Jin is an artist known for his versatility and creativity. His recent such as “Censor America (Zhangliang Meiguo)" and “Chinese Dream, shows the artist  working with traditional idea’s using contemporary materials. With these works there is a strong sense of continuum of his subsequent, remarkable performances of the 1990’s.

Chinese Dreams sculpture series, see’s Peking opera robes hand made with PVC and embroidered with fishing wire. Choosing plastic to represent the contemporary society. This is both representative of the soulful disconnect within society and a reference to plastic as a consumer product and a bi-product of globalisation. The Chinese Opera Robe as an icon represents tradition and the journey tradition is taking. The artist enforces this idea by using the chosen material with such contemporary properties.
