Big In China at White Rabbit Gallery

Making it big in an Eastern country used to be a second choice for Western rock stars.

Despite its multitude, the Chinese opinion was once considered inferior to established Western tastes. Yet China’s fast-paced transformation has turned the nation into a global powerhouse.

These days companies, brands, and even nations from around the world all scramble to win the favour of Chinese consumers.

What does it mean to make it big in China?

It is no easy feat to captivate the attention of over a billion wandering eyes and minds. How do we draw the focus of so many unique individuals and make them move in unison?

Artist Xu Zhen shows us how it’s done by transforming into a kind of snake-charmer - mesmerising viewers with his colossal, dancing, twisting Corinthian column.

Tang Nannan submerges us with mountainous waves until we become, as the Zen saying goes, simply one drop in an endless ocean.

Lin Yan humbles and unites us as mortals under her vast, textural sky.

These artists show us that it is not simply brute force that drives a nation and its people. Rather, it is the grand and overarching narratives, outstanding creativity and unique art practices that have the power to move this population en masse.
