Rong Rong, We are Here, Beijing 2002. No. 1.

MADRID.- The exhibition that Casa Asia presents aims at displaying part of the photographic route of the work of the Chinese artist Rong Rong (1968, Zhangzhou, province of Fujian, China), between 2000 and 2008. He is one of the most relevant figures of the avant-gardes of the end of the eighties and beginning of the nineties of last century.

Rong Rong's work begun in the East Village, where he coexisted with artists such as Zhang Huan or Ma Liumin. Exceptional witness of his contemporaries, such as the aforementioned artists, Rong Rong specialised in photography from a beginning, going from the register of the actions and performances of the artists -who made the main contributions to the development of contemporary Chinese art- to the registers of domestic and everyday life in a country and city that began a process of unstoppable mutation.
