Lot 63: Our Life is Sweeter than Honey

Info

Wang Qingsong's photographic works bear witness to the hopes and sorrows or ordinary Chinese people navigating China's rapid modernisation. In Our Life is Sweeter than Honey, a title inspired by lyrics from a Chinese pop song, he mixes symbols of Chinese traditional culture with new images from contemporary society to represent the tastes and symbols of happiness in the early 1990s. With the twentieth anniversary this year of Hong Kong's return to Chinese sovereignty, Wang chose the work, which he made about the handover and what he perceived to be maindlanders' ideas of the Special Adminstrative Region and hopes for a bright future.
