We would like to thank all artists, visitors and Sydney Contemporary Art Fair for the effort and time contributed to make this event a successful and fruitful one.
Being the only gallery which focuses on contemporary Chinese Art among all the 90 representatives, we are proud to be part of “The most dynamic exhibition to be seen in Australia this year”, according to art critic, John McDonald. We joined forces with 11 outstanding/established Chinese artists and brought their works to the international platform of many thousands of people interested in art.
Vermilion Art exhibited a wide range of works at the exhibition that included painting, photography, contemporary paper cutting, sculpture and other materials of art. In additional to the artworks exhibited at the booth, we also presented a unique installation art and performance art set. Sydney based Chinese artist, Tianli Zu’s paper cut work “Nowa is pregnant II” was displayed at the central location of main exhibition hall. This massive artwork brought an unprecedented visual impact to the audience.
Artist Cang Xin’s “Communication” art performance was the highlight of the art fair. His licking performance was fanatically received and well-engaged with the public. Cang Xin made a special trip from Bejing to Sydney to perform for three consecutive days.
A dialogue between Luise Guest, from White Rabbit Collection and leading artist Cang Xin about their first hand experience of the fast-moving world of contemporary Chinese Art has attracted the attention of an engaged audience looking to get more involved in this conversation. The collision of Eastern and Western cultures have certainly stirred up the crowd.
We are extremely grateful with all the positive feedback from the public and media. We sincerely wish to thank Art Fair Australia. We also wish to thank and support our artists Cang Xin, Li Jin, Tianli Zu, Emer Yang, Zhang Xiao, Li Xiaofeng, Peng Yong, Sun Ziyao, Li Jinguo, Hua-chen Huang and Jason Phu.
