Hua Gallery is delighted to celebrate the exhibition of Chinese multidisciplinary artist Han Bing. His photographic show Reversed Dreamscapes presents exquisite landscapes in which the image of modern China is ambiguously reflected within resplendent and polluted fragments of urban transformation.
Raised in a small village in rural China, Han Bing is a Beijing-based multidisciplinary artist whose language encompasses photography, performance, installation and painting. Han Bing’s main research is centred on the critical theme of modernisation in China today, and delves into issues caused by the frantic and dramatic urban transformation of the country. His work investigates the bifurcated reality of Chinese economic development, which if on the one hand presents progress and wealth for some individuals, on the other hand generates what art critic Zhuang Jia defines as “new capitalistic problems […] such as soaring inequalities, increasing materialism and consumerism, a collective nihilism, and a lack of human care.” Learn more
