李继开 Li Jikai

@ Museum Jan van der Togt 
10-12-2014 t/m 01-02-2015

Li Jikai's art is not a sheer expression of the thus missing ego, but rather trying to find the meaning of this ego. He depicts not anxiety and uneasiness of his contemporaries; instead, he lucidly expresses his own meditation. His art inosculates with the major trend of the 21st century in the contemporary Chinese art, that is during the breakthrough from the mainstream ideology, collective awareness vanishes, and artists come back to individuals, and to introspect personal experiences and value system form micro-perspective, which is, describe personal memory and circumstances with highly individualized artistic language. LINK Jan van der Togt (site in Dutch)
