Atopos Unlocked continued with Chinese photographer and poet Ren Hang, who has participated in the Occupy Atopos residency.
The radical, avant-garde, photographic work of 26-year-old Ren Hang is pervaded by intense lyricism and eroticism. Hang strips his friends/models bare and creates a number of original, provocative, diaristic narratives where youthfulness and sensuality constitute the leading elements. The human formations of the heretic artist sometimes appear indecent and offensive and other times fairy-like and refined.
Ren Hang’s alluring nature of work is regularly misinterpreted as a staged display of the modern Chinese subcultures and youths on the margins of society. However, the artist’s main intention is to capture men and women in their most natural and authentic form, in the nude. In his recent work titled 2014, which was presented in Capricious 88 gallery in New York, the artist focused on the conversation between the naked human body and the natural environment resulting in the most elaborate, camouflaged imagery.
All the limited edition works of Ren Hang will be available for sale during the exhibition.
