from the Publisher's introduction
Born in 1987 in Chang Chun, Jilin province in Northeastern China, Ren Hang is a photographer and poet.
His work is deliberately provocative and explicit, sometimes it is too much for the artist’s homeland where the highly conservative society and its conventional codes in art and communication do not gladly accept Ren Hang’s work and of other young artists who are the new generation of the Chinese cultural reawakening. Ren Hang has been invited by artist Ai Weiwei for the group exhibition “Fuck Off” in The Netherlands showcasing the new wave of the 21st century Chinese art scene.
Ren Hang’s work has banned in many galleries in China. Despite this, he has been exhibited widely in Russia, Italy, France, Sweden, United Kingdom, Austria and China as well.
He has already published four monography books.
Ren Hang lives and works in Beijing.
