Shanzai: Originals And Fakes

The concept of 'Shanzai' in Chinese contemporary art explodes the western idea of 'originals' and 'fakes'. Works of art in China are 'ongoing creations', progressively developed from the original and changed over time.

At this event we focus on the work of artists MadeIn Company and Sun Yuan and Peng Yu, whose work features in the Hayward gallery's exhibition 'Art of Change - New Directions from China'.

These artists look at the act of 'post-creation' as adding value to a work of art, as well as emphasizing that our understanding of the world is constantly in flux.
