Kintsukuroi-Camouflage

2020. Silk, gold paint. 168x1700cm.

Kintsukuroi-Camouflage is a kind of anthropomorphic fabric. The pattern and texture explore the subtle differences of varied skin tones. Camouflage not only implies coexistence and cohesion as a material frequently serves for military supplies, but it also implies concealment and conflicts. The application of gold paint in this work originates from the idea of Kintsukuroi for repairing broken historical objects. These golden brushstrokes exude a delicate expression in both implicit convergence and mutual accomplishment. This expression fits into a broader understanding of ethnic communities through means of the anthropomorphic nature of the work.

PU YINGWEI

Pu Yingwei, (b.1989), Lives and works in Beijing, China. received his BFA from Sichuan Fine art Institute, DNSEP (MFA with Félicitation du jury) from École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Lyon. Pu Yingwei’s work has been defined as an exercise in conceptual art with a strong utopian zeal. He is the artist who interprets the multiple media and identity narratives that he practices in the public sphere as a comprehensive mobilization. Taking personal history as an absolute starting point, with the exhibition, writing, design, lecturing, teaching, and other forms of work, he attempts to produce a kind of “meta-politics” that transcends grand topics such as race, nation, and ethics. Such politics is as complex and full of paradoxes as the reality we experience.
