Zang Kunkun

Zang Kun Kun’s approach of dealing with experiences of his native China, is expressed through a very universal language, transcending cultural standards, collective acceptance and subconscious agreements. By using industrial materials, he works themes, such as urbanization, the passage of time, and dimensions that are subject to time and space into his installations and paintings, which he altogether considers as objects.

In recent years, Zang Kun Kun has increasingly rendered his paintings as objects, rather than depictions of objects on the painted plane. He is attempting to build mutual connections between painting, objects and the things in the paintings, but on an even, rather than hierarchal footing. This implies, that his art is gradually shifting towards a general art, as opposed to some special notion of painting.
