Su Xianzhong

China


Su Xianzhong (b.1968) is an established artist and a fourth generation ceramist. Using Blanc de Chine (Dehua white porcelain) from his native Fujian province, Su incorporates oriental philosophical meditation as the core idea for his sculptures, attempting to interpret how people deal with current social problems and how to remain true to ones beliefs in the rapidly evolving world through his works.

 

In terms of creation, Su believes that we should never simply follow traditions. The most important thing for an artist is to explore breakthroughs and even subversions in the creative process in order to create more personalized and conceptual works. Su’s Paper series was recently acquired by the V&A Museum.


Nobuyoshi Araki

Japan


Nobuyoshi Araki (Tokyo, 1940) is one of the most recognized photographers in Japan who has focused his work on the themes of Eros, Thanatos as well as the impermanence in life since the 1960s. Exemplified by up-close, personal snapshots of naked women gazing emptily into the camera, Araki photographed the extremes of reality and fiction, Eros (life/ sex) and Thanatos (death), capturing the opposing elements of the two.


Shortly after he began his career as a commercial photographer, he began organizing solo exhibitions and publishing photography books. In 1971, Araki self-published “Sentimental Journey”, a visual narrative of the honeymoon with his wife Yoko. His works are held in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among others.
