Xun Cao | Fat Duck performance

Sunday February 18 from 1 – 3pm

TSB Bank Wallace Arts Centre, Auckland

Xun Cao’s performance work, FAT DUCK will be in direct conversation with Alex Plumb’s video exhibition, ROSARIO for one day. Both artists have exhibited together in the past alongside themes of normalcy and the body. This time round, Cao’s work will extend the conversation from Latin to Chinese queerness.

Queer culture in China has never been so popularly debated in traditional media compared to the past. Media and newspapers call it ‘Pink Money’ in China. These medias often use well educated people, rich people or hot looking queers as examples to represent China’s LGTBQI groups. The idea behind the live sculpture is to show young generation queers how to be comfortable in an awkward space and to not be afraid to show who they really are.
