THE ART Fans Store | 艺术粉的铺
“The ART Fans Store” consists of a series of fake DVDs produced by the artist, which he hopes to construct alternative forms of art, a form of “institution criticism”, a sense of humor and irony. The artworld is highly capitalized at the moment, art producers are struggling to balance the duality of one’s identity: between an artist and an art celebrity. Kaihang’s work hopes to unwind the complex interactions within the contemporary art industry, as well as the blooming art fan economy that lies behind the scenes.
