BE SURE TO CHECK OUT ZHŌNG GUÓ MÈNG AT GALLERY 115 THIS WEEK
Jennifer Tang and Jinhui Wang’s duo show questions Chinese identities in a western context. The common point between the two artists is that they are of Chinese origin; however, the differences in the experiences they've had in their lives, and their understanding and interpretation of this subject are very different. Does an "ABC" (American born Chinese) who lives a Chinese-Canadian life shares the same experience of being Chinese as a Chinese international student coming to Canada? As China itself is a very complex country, regardless of the different points of view that Jenn and Jinhui took, the artists ask themselves the same question: is it enough to simply claim ourselves as Chinese?
