Artist-LI Gang
LI Gang, born in Puning city of Guangdong Province, China, in 1962, now works in the Art Museum of Central Academy of Fine Arts in China.
LI Gang is one of the representative artists who employ ink-related mixed materials as mediums and succeed in transforming from traditional Chinese freehand painting to contemporary painting. He tries to build a link between contemporary ink and the current social reality, as a way to think about the inheritance of Chinese traditional culture and the cultural problems in modern time. LI focuses on mixed media creation with techniques and mediums of ink, performance, video, installation, rubbing, etc. Ruins: Re-Deconstruction of LI Gang’s Ink is a work that cost him three years to create, consisting of four parts: ‘picking’, ‘extracting’, ‘transforming’ and ‘exchanging’. It contains LI ’s intention of using ‘ruins’ as a tool to question and reinterpret our civilization.
LI Gang’s work has participated in the second “Guangzhou Triennial”, the Collateral Events of the 35th Venice Biennale, and solo exhibitions held in Guangdong Museum of Art, Shaanxi Province Art Museum, and Today Art Museum in Beijing, and other exhibitions organized by art museums and art centers of some cities in Belarus, Thailand (Bangkok), Singapore, Korea, Estonia, Austria, as well as cities around China, Hong Kong included. Art institutions like Guangdong Museum of Art, Art Museum of Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts and Shenzhen He Xiangning Art Museum now have registered collections of LI ’s work.
