Forum, 120x210cm, 2001

Forum was triggered by the “achievements” China made in 2001. All people were so happy because first, we entered WTO; second, we were granted with the right to host Olympics 2008; third, Chinese national football team got into the top 32 team for the World Cup. All these achievements seem to give us more confidence that we are becoming much stronger. Therefore many cosmopolitan cities organize international forums on the environment, population, economic growth, etc etc. The “Forum” work aims at express my skeptical attitude towards the mainly superficial devices that define our need to make our actions appear always bigger and better than actual reality.
