Ma Jianfeng (b. 1983, Zhejiang province) graduated from China Academy of Art in 2007 before earning his MFA from Berlin University of the Arts in 2012. He currently lives and works in Beijing. Ma incorporates abandoned materials and objects from everyday encounters into his work and disrupts their inherent order. Through reconstruction, assemblage, and reconfiguration, he creates painting installations that are theatrical sites of chaos and ambiguity to interrogate the politics of space. Recent solo exhibitions include “MA” (Ying Space, Beijing, 2016); “Shanghai Lady” (Swatch Art Peace Hotel, Shanghai, 2014); “The Wall” (Dong Gallery, Shanghai, 2013). Group exhibitions include “Never Arriving: OCAT Xi’an 2014 Summer Projects” (OCAT Xi’an, 2014).
Yang Zi received his bachelor’s degree in philosophy and religious studies from Nanjing University and is currently a publications and exhibitions coordinator for UCCA. Yang Zi has worked in art criticism and curation for nearly ten years, starting with his participation in the YCCA project at UCCA in 2008, which introduced him to art criticism and writing. Prior to joining UCCA, Yang Zi was an editor of LEAP, and he has written extensively for a range of publications, including LEAP, Artforum China, Art Bank, and Art Time, among others. He acted as executive editor on a series of UCCA catalogues, including Wang Yin: The Gift, Liu Wei: Colors, Xu Zhen: A MadeIn Company Production, and Zeng Fanzhi: Parcours. His curatorial projects include “La Chair” (A+ Contemporary, Shanghai, 2016) and “Secret Chamber” (am Art Space, Shanghai, 2016).
