Artists: Bu Yunjun, Hu Qingtai, Li Pengpeng, Shao Jie, Shi Yiran, Hao Jingfang & Wang Lingjie, Xu Danqing, Xue Ruozhe, Yang Xi,Yu Feier
The exhibition context of ‘VARIOUS DIVERSIONS : Different, Potential, Flowing’ is the process of returning to a vibrant individual narrative after the fragmentation of a grand social narrative.
The exhibition presents two dimensions of consideration: First, the exhibition is completed under the influence and intervention of many conditions and paths, where conditions are both a restriction and a space for creative ideas; Second, the exhibition is a mixture of many different paths, i.e. many different elements of different artists. Each artist has his or her own unique path, his or her own ability and vision to see the world, and “The Divergent Paths” is a collective presentation of these paths. There are no symbolic works of the times here, but rather a collection of many “solitary works”, namely the individual spirit of the “ego”, some of the most direct responses.

“If I am surreal, it doesn’t mean I have to create surreality. My body is surreal, my organs are surreal, and everything I hear and see is surreal. We seem to be in the same environment but not in it.” –Pengpeng Li
“The childlike greed of watching the world and the greed of leaving traces of my own visual translation may be the destiny of my choice of painting even today.” –Shi Yiran
