CFCCA are proud to present Social Behaviours, an exciting collection of solo works by the bold, individual and experimental Beijing based artist Li Binyuan. His work ranges from sculpture to video-art to live-action pieces, expressed and performed through a number of public disturbances of Beijing’s social life.

About

The exhibition showcases the films which form part of these ephemeral performances, through which Binyuan challenges and questions widely held beliefs and ideas with a playful inventiveness and an unbounding sense of artistic freedom.

The artist will join us in presenting the UK debut of his one of his most ground breaking pieces, Deathless Love, performed live on 14 May as part of Manchester After Hours 2015, a city-wide evening celebration of culture.
