DESCRIPTION

Cheng Ran’s solo show, Hot Blood, Warm Blood, Cold Blood will open at the same time. The exhibition will present a video work of the same title – a 3-channel colour video with sound, in which the artist demonstrates 3 characteristics of the horse – hot blood, warm blood, and cold blood.

It is important to note that Cheng Ran’s 3-channel video work is not primarily a conceptual work. The artist hopes to reduce the technical influence to a minimum level through the deliberate use of inappropriate editing to demonstrate the formality embraced in symbolism and imagery, thus representing an unknown image-space. In an early unpublished statement, Cheng Ran wrote that: “Hot blood, warm blood and cold blood signify 3 characteristics of the horse: the invisible elements that drift in different directions of emotional and spiritual states; similar to the spiritual world of human beings, unreachable, but indispensable.”
