From May to August 2018, Kunming curator and artist Luo Fei was invited to participate in the Kunming-Zurich Friendship City Exchange Residency Project. This was also the first time that Luo Fei visited Switzerland.
Artists Roles / Artists Rules is an exhibition on the artist’s mission, responsibility, duty and position in society- sometimes enforced, sometimes self-imposed. Each artist has worked individually from a personal standpoint on an individual basis as well as with the vision of how things ideally could be. The opening will be 8pm, Sep 9th
The book release event will be hold at 19:30 on Oct 10 at TCG Nordica Gallery. Related to the release event, TCG Nordica will arrange a discussion about how contemporary art has developed in Yunnan since 2000 when Chuangku and TCG Nordica were established in town. The whole event will be in Chinese and English.
I named the book To Start from Art. To me, whether as artists or curators, it’s about starting from the arts at and in our hands, continuously improving our own ideas, and sharing them with others. With efforts and understanding, we may be able to go to the origin of what art is all about.
The art scene already has so many people and galleries that know the price of everything, but the value of nothing. Luo Fei is one of those artists who opens up a space of what Hou Hanru would call a ‘third way’ — something different from the capitalist-dominated or state-dominated models.
Through his own work, his work with TCG Nordica, Luo Fei, is an important bridge builder between artists, between art and society, opening up for reflection on art, faith and social concerns, and also inspiring us in far away Nordic countries…
In this bilingual book To Start from Art, Luo Fei grasps the Word, rebuilds artistic morals, and listens to his conscience about what moves art and artists, forging the stories of Chinese and international artists into his view of the artist’s prophetic role and his critical insight into artistic phenomena.
This book uses examples from the past decade of contemporary art in Yunnan Province to demonstrate developments in Chinese art and ideas.
