( Fine Arts department )

 

 

1989

He graduated from Beijing Normal University.

   

1992

He married the artist Yin Xiuzhen.

 

He turned to performance, installation, sculpture and video to develop

 

in his work, ideas of memory and impermanence.

   

1997

2000

He wons the Grand Award at the Gwanju Biennial, in South Korea.
   

2001

He works with his wife for the first time on a project, a metaphor of the family :

 

The Way of Chopsticks. Each artist creates half of the work - a single chopstick  -

 

according to previously chosen parameters, but each on its own, until

 

the two sculptures are joined.

   

2013

They transformed the Rittenhouse Square mansion into a three-storey multimedia installation 

 

inviting the viewer to see the differences and similarities between American and Chinese

 

family life. Their daughter Song ErRhui was also collaborating on this project.
