Cao Fei is no doubt one of the most remarkable and powerful artists of this generation. Born in 1978 in Guangzhou, Cao Fei has grown up in the world of electronic entertainments and advertisements. Fascinated by the vibrant landscapes of the consumer society, She started with her artistic career at an extremely young age. Cao Fei has developed a highly personal language of image making demonstrating the fantasy, desire, critique and jouissance vis-à-vis the mutating reality.
Cao Fei’s work was recently shown at China Power Station: Part 1, an off-site Serpentine Gallery exhibition of contemporary Chinese video, sound and installation art co-produced by The Red Mansion Foundation at Battersea Power Station.
