Born in 1974 in Birmingham, United Kingdom, Richard Hughes lives and works in London. Hughes’ sculptural practice is engaged in the counterproductive act of manufacturing decay and illusion. He creates objects that evoke, through their weathered appearance, the aftermath of good times past. His pieces are carefully crafted to look like: a found piss bottle covered in dew (“Roadsider”, 2005), a moldy old sofa with mushrooms growing on it (“After the Summer of Like”, 2005). Flip-flops half buried in the ground (“The Last Drag”, 2005). Far from simple ready-mades, Hughes’ works are laborious copies of bric-a-brac. They appear as residual artifacts that epitomize the moment when suburban working-class culture enters the mainstream. Bringing with it a multitude of inappropriate objects.

Xiao Lu (born 1962 in Hangzhou, China) is a Chinese artist who works with performance, installation and other art forms. However, she is best known for her performance. She rose to fame in 1989, when she participated in the 1989 Chinese Avant-Garde Exhibition with her work Dialogue. Barely two hours after the exhibition opened, she suddenly shot her own work with a pellet gun, causing the exhibition to stop immediately. When the Tiananmen Square Massacre occurred four months later, his actions were heavily politicized, referred to as “Tiananmen’s first shots.”

THE 1989 CHINESE AVANT-GARDE EXHIBITION.

Preparations for the Chinese avant-garde exhibition began in 1986. It was the first time that an art exhibition for contemporary Chinese artists was organized and organized solely by Chinese organizers. After being postponed in 1987 by the launch of the Chinese Communist Party’s political movement, “Against Bourgeois Liberalization”, the exhibition finally received official permission to open at the National Art Museum of China in Beijing on February 5. 1989.

Gunshot.

At approximately 11:10 a.m. on February 5, 1989 – two hours after the opening of the Chinese Avant-Garde Exhibition – Xiao Lu fired two shots into his own work, Dialogue, with a pellet gun. The exhibition was immediately shut down by public security, and Xiao Lu attracted national and international media attention.

Born in Tokyo, Japan, the work of Rachel Perry is present in many museums and private collections around the world. Including the Museum of Fine Arts and the Boston Institute of Contemporary Art. The Baltimore Museum of Art. Ford Foundation and the List Visual Arts Center at MIT.

Rachel Perry’s varied practice includes installation. The sculpture. Performance. Photography. Painting and drawing. In response to trends she observes in contemporary culture, Perry often re-enacts everyday materials in her work, such as supermarket labels, receipts. Twist ties and fruit stickers. By rearranging this material and the experiences of his daily life in visually startling ways, Perry addresses a range of issues related to consumption and the affairs of life.

Photographic self-portraits.

His interest in the way we consume. Let’s sort, process and sort information is evident in the series Lost in my Life (2009-2012). These photographic self-portraits feature Perry camouflaged in a space composed of materials taken from other bodies of her work, such as collections of cereal boxes. Take-out containers and aluminum foil. Both humorous and visually appealing, these photographs also testify to the pervasiveness of consumer culture in today’s world.

Chiral Drawings.

Her series, Chiral Drawings (2014-2016), began as an attempt to make a drawing using every pen, pencil, crayon and marker she owns. Limiting his expression to a single line with each instrument, performed with the left hand then with the right hand. The works have a haunting quality. Evoking time measurements, such as seismographs or electrocardiograms. As in Lost in my Life, in Chiral Drawings Perry reveals poetic qualities in seemingly mundane materials.

British artist SHOK-1 paints unique x-ray paintings on walls around the world. The works present a kind of diagnosis of life in the 21st century. Sometimes in good health, sometimes pathological.

A cool mix of street and science. Works of art have a huge resonance with a wide range of demographics. Pop culture fans. Contemporary and street art. To surgeons, radiologists and scientists. Dark in beauty and packed with subtle layers of intricate detail. X-rays are one of the most difficult subjects a painter can attempt. SHOK-1 pioneered advanced freehand techniques by not using tape or stencils to render its radiographic style.

Anti-intellectualism.

Pro-science, the artist aims to defend rationalism at a time when anti-intellectualism is on the rise. Scientists are silenced and experts denounced in favor of layman’s opinion.

He was one of the first Europeans to appropriate the street cultures that exploded in the United States in the early 1980s. Laying the foundations for what has become one of the most important art movements in the world . He has never stopped reinventing his job and taking risks throughout a career spanning more than 30 years.
