About the Great Silent Majority
by Pékin Fine Arts (Hong Kong)
Location: Pekin Fine Arts (Hong Kong)
Artist(s): YANG Dong Xue
Date: 25 Jan - 15 Mar 2014

Pekin Fine Arts presents their 1st solo exhibit project with Beijing artist Yang Dongxue. Dong Xue works with sculptural and sound installation and watercolor drawings, focusing mainly on the artist’s perpetual struggle to express oneself honestly – and accurately - to the audience, and inevitably falling short. Dong Xue’s practice is marked by a deep ambivalence toward art production and his role as a player in the contemporary art scene. He sees himself as a “dedicated” and “serious” artist who is painfully aware of the futility of such dedication and seriousness.

He aims to illustrate the prelude to art production, rather than the result or objects of such production. His focus is on the thought involved in “making stuff”, while knowing that such artist produced iterations will never fully meet the artist’s expectations. Shifting the focus away from the outcome, Dong Xue aims at demonstrating his thought-process prior to giving birth to the object. The conscious and subconscious act of conceiving the artwork is the focal point for Dong Xue.
