DESCRIPTION

Sun Xun explores the cultural traditions of hospitality in his native China in a new, large-scale installation of drawing and animation created in response to the Bluecoat’s gallery spaces.
Referencing Song Dynasty customs and style from the 11th century, he uses traditional and new media forms of expression to negotiate the complex position of ‘host’ in contemporary China.
