Opening: 01.23 15:00 PM
Celebrating the 3rd Anniversary of
Chinese New Year Fine Art Print Festival
Huang Kai preferred a line-drawing illustration style popular
in the early 20th century Chinese comic books to describe the
social backdrop of the 80's, concentrated on his own story in
From Huang Kai's works, one can see the
extensions of a "homeland", such as street blocks, neighborhoods,
fellow townsmen and an imagination of the previous generations
about the "neighborhood" relations; the works also embody
a sense of soberness of an onlooker. However, the events and time
frames in the paintings, the faulty juxtaposition and contradictions
between memories and regions, rendering this "throwback"
a combination of melancholy and sweet sentiments. Even though
the narrator maintained his cynical stance against this misplaced
longing, he did not measure up to Aristophanes's polemical satires.
This was the inclination of "nostalgic narratives" in
modern mainland culture.
