SHI XINNING

Shi Xinning’s works contain two elements. One is the faithful reproduction of ‘real events’ from newspapers, the other element is fabrications based on his own imagination. The premise is to present the audience with a different reality. Our supposed ‘reality’ is derived from different media, including the newspaper. The artist questions this kind of ‘reality’.
