Lives and Works: Beijing
Liang Ban was born in Guangxi, China in 1985. He graduated with a BFA in Sculpture from the Guangxi Art Institute in Nanning, China.
Liang Ban works across video, installation, photography and painting and has participated in numerous domestic and international exhibitions. Liang’s art practice can be described as if he is a tomb raider: he excavates the essence of the subcultures, generic imageries, fictional legends and other information which can be pulled from a universal conscious. He uses this information to connect with a personal and/or socio-political tragedy, resulting in wonderfully dramatic creations. Liang’s concise art approach imbues his artworks with undeniable creativity and imagination, which invites viewers to face the often challenging issues found in his work.
Liang’s solo exhibitions include, Landscape Browser, de Sarthe Gallery, Beijing, China (2016) and Slightly Confused, Taikang Space, Beijing, China (2016). His recent group shows include, Digital Samplers or a New Generation Deep Dive into Internet Superposition, The Galaxy Museum of Contemporary Art, Chongqing, Chine (2017); Reversal Ritual, de Sarthe Gallery, Hong Kong (2017); The Image Expression in the Art Practice of the New Generation, Xi’an Museum, China (2016); GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL, Goethe Institut, Beijing, China (2016); Turning Point: Contemporary Art in China Since 2000, Minsheng Art Museum, Shanghai, China (2016); In the Dimensionality, Between Art Lab, Shanghai, China (2016); Figure-Image-Drawing and Subject, Tsinghua University Art Museum, Beijing, China (2015); Olhares Interiores, Macao Museum of Art, Macao,China (2015); Polyphony II--Ecological Survey of Chinese Art - Beijing, Art Museum of Nanjing University of Arts, China (2014); A Room Not One’s Own, Space Station, Beijing, China (2014); Self Identity Out of the Land of Experience, Hong Kong Contemporary Art Gallery, Beijing, China (2014); Art Sanya, HIHEY Art Center, Sanya, China (2013) and The Speech: The Free Speech from the Artists, CAFA Art Museum, Beijing, China (2012).
