Kuso-Rainbow Fairies
2007
01 / 10

This series of work is narrative but also unclear in its structure. The artist keeps telling stories in a way that tries to make the stories clear but not too clear. The murmuring of the artist is surprisingly intriguing, and the audience can enter or leave the stories, which are the main elements of lifestyles in the globalized society, anytime they desire.

The Japanese word “Kuso” refers to something that is very funny, ridiculous, stupid or prankish. The artist uses a Kuso approach when deconstructing the Chinese characters that make up the title “Seven Rainbow Faires” into five separate and independent characters: Cai, Hong, Qi, Xian, Zi.At the same time, he also uses the color of the various elements; metal, wood, water, fire, and earth – white, green, blue, red, yellow - as his focus colors. Despite using these elements, the artist does not attempt to enage in philosophical discussion or offer definitons. In other words, this is more a playful and superficial work, highlighting the fact that the fashionable young people who gather in Ximending and their Kuso type behavior is an accurate reflection of the popular sub culture phenomenon.
