Vernissage TV, Broadcast of Interview with Chi Ming, November 2012

‘Chi Ming – JS Tan: Testing Freedom’s Temperature’, displays the works by Chi Ming (Yan Tai, 1984) and JS Tan (Hong Kong, 1986)… Both artists, associated with their country’s leading art professors and two of the world’s finest art colleges, CAFA in Beijing and Rhode Island School of Design in USA, explore processes of freedom and liberty through their artistic expression, the power of choice and self-determination. Placing their works side-by-side, it is interesting to witness the sensual quality of Tan’s ink and charcoal works, full of discipline and unambiguity, together with the hot-headed Chi Ming’s oil paintings, captive of his desires and intimate scenarios.
