Chairman Meow

17 October 2018

These creations stem from my immersive encounters while filming in China during the period surrounding the 20th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square protests. My visit to Beijing provided profound insights into the realm of dissident artists in China, shedding light on the experiences of luminaries such as Guo Jian, Yan Zhengxue, Liu Yi, Chen Guang, and Ai Weiwei.

Embark with me on a journey into the realm of “Chairman Meow,” where my artistic vision unfolds amidst the complex tapestry of contemporary Chinese socio-political discourse.
