CHINA Turkey Art

Yin Xiuzhen, Nowhere To Land, 2012, installation used clothes, steel, stainless steel, mirror, headlights, 330 X 240 X 210 cm  
Art institution
OCT Contemporary Art Terminal Shanghai recently announced a “retrospective”of Yang Zhenzhong's work, the artist's first solo collaboration with a domestic Chinese art museum.
The entrepreneur, collector, gallerist, and artist Kim Chang-il (CI Kim) simultaneously expands his gallery empire across several countries, including China, even though the closure of his Arario Gallery, end of 2012 in Beijing indicated his withdrawal from China. LEAP saw Kim's recent solo exhibition at Arario's flagship space in Cheonan, South Korea, acquiring more information on his vision and career.
Press release reveals White Space Beijing's latest exhibition, the works on display focus “on exploring the extensibility of individual energy as well as the evolution of matter, and combining them to invade and adjust the relationship between the self-interior and the social system.” At least for viewers familiar with contemporary China, the artist Gao Lei convinces the audience.
When confronting the works of female artists and of those female artists in opposition to the so-called “women's art”gender identity has often been an issue. Feminine characteristics in Yin Xiuzhen's art are apparent, but we see more to the artist than that.
With his debut feature film Let Panda Fly, artist Zhao Bandi finally sets free all the pandas that have accompanied him throughout the years.
