Prussian Projekte proudly presents Ran Huang's first solo show in Nottingham Fake Action Truth.
Huang's practice hovers between media as he works in and between the lines of film, video, installation and performance. Working with various conceptual strategies he seeks to challenge the inextricable links between contemporary culture and politics.
Fake Action Truth poses the viewer with various questions, utilising confusion and the ambiguity of repressed sexuality and male relationships in contrast to a current of violence between polar opposites. The blurring of the boundaries between sexuality and violence creates a sense of ethical dislocation, challenging the apparent puzzle of contemporary politics, as an attempt to reframe hostile perception of hostile relationships.
