EXHIBITION SYNOPSISAbout Nanting-Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Next Art Basel
"I told people I am 1/16 Japenese since 2009, my grandpa's father was Japenese, he comes to China to join the revolution with Sun Yat-sen, after the revolution fail, he stays in Xi'an, marry my grandpa's mother, and he dies after my grandpa was born. "
About the same time, year 1900, Guan Liang, an important artist was born in Nanting village. His former residence can still be visited this days. 2009, Xiao Hei (Sun Wenhao) moves to Nanting, since then Nanting have a serious artist again. Some friends of Xiao Hei (Sun Wenhao) call him "New Guan Liang Of Nanting", I think, besides painting on the paper, Xiao Hei (Sun Wenhao) would also paint on the bedquilt, sofa, doors, chairs, balls...what a mess. And he sew on the notebook, as I know, that takes a lot of strengh. Xiao Hei (Sun Wenhao) initiates "Nanting Art Basel" in the toilet of his residence in Nanting, and he puts a golden cudgel (a weapon used by the Monkey King in the novel Pilgrimage to the West) on the toilet. I am considering, is this toilet means the sea dragon palace? And Xiao Hei (Sun Wenhao) is the Monkey King?
XIao Hei's original name is Sun Wenhao, therefore, his hometown called Sun's village.
