Stephan The Speculator
by DDM Warehouse
Location: ddm Warehouse
Artist(s): JIN Shan
Date: 11 Apr - 17 May 2009

Collaborator: Pekin Fine Arts
Special thanks: Biljana Ciric, Jin Weihong, Zhang Fang, Segolene Dubernet

In Jin Shan's solo exhibition, the artist fabricated his show around an abstract martyr-Stephen (the protomartyr of Christianity).

In the show, the abstract martyr is materialized into a herd of persecuted sheep, the latter being imagined as Stephen, the martyr of reality.

The exhibition is divided into five individual parts telling one story: sheep persecuted, sheep educated and sheep's fight-back, integrating animation, performance and installation.

The visitors are guided by the artist's designed route into a testing field for the power-creating martyr, which humorously discussed the topics of how the public obtains power and the destiny of martyr.
