Sun Xun will be participating in an Artist Talk titled ‘The Drama in Animation, Chineseness and Generation Y’ as part of K11 and Videotage’s collaborative group exhibition program ‘One World Exposition 2.1 #like4like’. The talk aims to explore Sun Xun’s perspective on the environmental factors contributing to his practice as a Generation Y artist in Mainland China. Known for challenging conventional notions of history and narrative through his largely stop-motion animation work, Sun Xun will be reflecting on socio-political issues on a personal level and reflecting upon how these concepts are ingrained within contemporary Chinese art as a whole.
