Art Fairs and Beijing Opera

Liu Xiaodong. The Valley of the Demon I, 2005. Oil on Canvas

The art fair weekend is just fantastic, and glamorous. Have you ever noticed how beautiful the art world people are? The people at the art fairs are almost as interesting to look at as the art, from an obsessive-compulsive human observer like me. You can read all the highlights of the fairs at here and here and here, so I am not going to blab too much about it. Maybe just one thing, I am so glad there’s no more paintings of Chinese people with Coke bottle and KFC logo (sometimes riding a Disney character), that was so last year. I recommend you to check out the paintings of real Chinese life/people by Liu Xiaodong, his Three Gorges Dam Project is heartfelt, seductive and somewhat chilly.

Shen Wei. The Horny Widow. 2007
Tip: if you stare longer enough, she might wink at you.

I also was busy shooting for my Concubines of New York project this weekend. The opera group I was following around had a performance today in Chinatown. I finally switched to a Canon 5D from a Mamiya RZ II because the super fast pace at the back stage. A friend of mine who previously quitted playing woman role (a tradition in Chinese Opera that male actor plays female role) has decided to play a horny widow this time, all because of his intention of spicing up my project. I am quiet thrilled about it and he absolutely did not disappoint me. His comedy piece was so hilarious and provocative; I nearly threw out my camera, twice.
