About Art of Dining 2017 honoree Sun Xun

Sun Xun (Chinese, born 1980, Fuxin, Liaoning Provence, China; based in Hangzhou, China) presents an intense skepticism of historical narrative and disillusionment with the post-1949 "New China" that informs the political and fanciful nature of his installations, drawings, and animations. Sun's sequence animations are created by drawing, erasing, and recording individual frames and stringing them together to create a gritty narrative about an unidentified and ambiguous era. He carries this preoccupation with erasure into his wall drawings and installations, a metaphorical exploration of the ephemerality of art and a questioning of its inherent value.

See Sun Xun on the Bloomberg program, Brilliant Ideas.

He was recently featured in The New York Times; read the story here
