Seven Sages of Bamboo Grove.2018.10
         
This project attempts to fundamentally push this kind of failure further by getting rid of conventional artwork characters: no title, no author, no description, no boundary, no space, no audience, no be seen.

The seven ways are inspired by Seven Sages of the Bamboo Grove, a group of Chinese scholars and poets of the mid-3rd century AD who banded together to escape from the dictatorship of government and seek for a life drinking and writing in the countryside. Their retreat advocated the freedom of individual expression in a corrupt age. The artworks that employ these ways are like these people who used retreat as a tool of creation beyond cliché and supremacy.In a word, this project employs the form of rejection to seven conventional characters of artworks as a tool of creation.
