(When he left Beijing in 1989, he cut the little finger off of his left hand and buried it in a flower pot.) Since returning to China after completing his artistic studies in London, he has been selected to participate in the Nippon International Performance Festival, and the recent International Center of Photography exhibition, Between Past and Future , where his photographic work was selected for the cover of the exhibition catalogue. He is also one of the few artists inChina to concern himself with AIDS and to become involved in local awareness campaigns. Essays by Huang Du, Hou Hanru, Lois Keidan and Wang Ming'an.
