Artist Peng Yun and Jiu Society will participate in White Rabbit Gallery exhibition ” HOT BLOOD”. This exhibition opens on March 15, and will last until August 4.
HOT BLOOD introduces 23 artists who are not afraid to take risks. Playful, irreverent – and sometimes downright subversive – they explore subjects ranging from sexual desire and bodily frailty to spiritual ecstasy and the need for human connection. These global artists inhabit a complicated world; they are as likely to be found showing their work in Berlin or Beirut as in Beijing. Whether they emerge from a generation of cosmopolitan millennials or from an older avant-garde generation such as Xiao Lu and Yin Xiuzhen, they refuse to be labelled or limited by gender, age or national identity.

Peng Yun was born in Sichuan in 1982. She holds a BA in Oil Painting from Sichuan Fine Arts Institute in 2003, and an MA in New Media from China Academy of Art in 2007. Peng now lives and works in Macau.
As a female artist, active in fields of video and performance, Peng Yun has been keenly and persistently exploring female consciousness with her gender identity. From “Summer of Xiaoduo” in 2009 to video “SARA” as most recent work, the artist’s projects demonstrate a reflection of roles and changes in female psychology along her development as an artist.
