Born in 1969, lives and works in Beijing.
"Art, Do I Love!
In my whole life, I’ve been loving so many worlds that actually I cannot deal with all of them. Rights-talk is sunk in the standardized, unnatural and mask-like expressions as well as the greedy vanity fair, that I doubt its’ knowledge biologically. In the life-death process of species and reality drifts multi-layers of information and eternal light all the time. Normally my body is a life under photosynthesis, at this moment! Then there may be just a thin line between beauty and ugliness deep in your mind; at this moment the mind is subverting the peace and communicating with yourself."
What are you?—a practitioner of body objectification.
