curator invited by Shumon Basar

Zhang Wei & Hu Fang

As founding members of Vitamin Creative Space in Guangzhou, Zhang Wei and Hu Fang both write, curate, garden, and cultivate new species of art spaces, which explore an alternative working mode specifically geared to the contemporary Chinese context, and constantly inspired by the confrontation between the contemporary life and ancient Chinese philosophy. Launched in Guangzhou in 2014, the project space Mirrored Gardens grows as an experimental site attempting to construct a “field”, where contemporary art practice, quotidian life and a kind of farming-oriented life practice, meet and overlap with each other.
