Singapore, June 2015 - ShanghART Gallery is pleased to present ‘Unfounded Predictions’, Sun Xun’s second solo exhibition in Singapore from 1st August to 4th October 2015. The exhibition showcases 56 works created between 2012-2014 under various art residency programme in different countries, some of which has been exhibited for a year at “My Generation: Young Chinese Artists” presented by the Tampa Museum of Art and Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg last year. In addition, Sun Xun will paint live in ShanghART Singapore on “the spur of the moment”, the artwork will be presented alongside with the rest.

Sun Xun’s creations often correspond to events happening in reality. During his residency in Singapore Tyler’s Print Institute back in 2013, his artwork “Republic of Jing Bang” – a pseudo country was originated to reflect a multiracial co-existence, and a harmonious country governed with critical strategies. Ironically, the exhibition was cancelled due to a riot outbreak in Little India. The incident seems to be a contrasting occurrence in relation to Sun Xun’s work.

When Art addresses world issues, it interacts and becomes part of our life, provoking our thoughts. How does a country and history exist when time is of the essence? In 2013, Sun Xun participated in a group exhibition at Yalta European Strategy Annual Meeting held in Ukraine. By the end of the exhibition, Ukraine fell into the state of crisis. Peculiarly, history seems to reshuffle itself while the unknown lingers in reality.

Reflected in his art, Sun Xun has always been concerned with the world issues and events, how his work probes and opens a dialogue with the world. “ In retrospect, the world is still huge while I am minute in comparison, and the unknown is boundless like a black hole. Well, I have marked my presence around the world with over a hundred pieces of painting created for each residency programme to witness the merciless history. For history, for life, for art, perhaps the only thing we need to be is to embrace the unpredicted, unfounded occurrence!” – Sun Xun
