Avent Studio: A Touch of Beijing Art in NYC
"Finding Puberty" invited its audience to "look back to their lives and to recall their memories of the simplest and vivid days."
Avent Studio, launched its debut art show on February 20th at Williamsburg's Ran Tea House, mixing food and art in an irreverant look at earliest and purest experience with sex. "Finding Puberty" invited its audience to "look back to their lives and to recall their memories of the simplest and vivid days."
As I strolled the the exhibition, I was struck at the similarities to exhibitions by young Millennials in Beijing. Artists HE Wei and Hu "rebuild the scenario of our childhood carnival, with absurd yet spectacular toy and food installations, to depict our germination of sex." Both often that a cheeky, even mocking approach to serious issues facing Chin'a first truly global generation. Dildo water bottles, cotton candy, Chinese and Western sweets, quirky childhood motifs... "Finding Puberty" takes a satirical and innovative approach to our nostalgia for the amatory memories of our puberty. The use of food as the main medium adds an additional layer of innocence, and yet titillation.
We're looking forward to Avent Studio future shows by Avent's founder and curator HE Wei and his wonderful team.
