Open House embodies ChART Contemporary’s mission of bringing together art and people through curatorial initiatives that educate, stimulate and support the production of new works by emerging artists. Open House is inspired by marketing tools used by local real estate developers to sell property based on showrooms that are designed to reflect the living standards desired in China today.  This concept evolved from the American marketing concept where doors are opened to the public for an afternoon and potential buyers, renters and lookers are invited to visit a property. Initiated in April 2009, Open House presents a new project by an emerging artist for one afternoon in a space that is for rent, sale, abandoned or slated for demolition.

 


 
Open House: Oh, It’s Like That is a site-specific mixed media installation. Cheng Guangfeng (b. 1983) was inspired to create this installation while contemplating how mundane situations often get blown out of proportion and become controversial social issues, which can lead to heated debates, rumors and miscommunication. Through technical drawings and “scientific” research accompanied by variations of a beating human heart, Mr. Cheng is poking fun at life and reminding us to make conclusions based on meticulous research.   

 


 
Mr. Cheng is an emerging artist from Shenyang, Liaoning Province. He studied 3D Design at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in Singapore where he specialized in ceramics. Since moving back to his hometown, Mr. Cheng’s practice has shifted towards performance art and site-specific conceptual installations that incorporate sound, sculpture, drawing, and light to reflect on personal memory and universal human fragility.  Combining attention to detail and scientific precision with a satirical humor, his work is deeply influenced by growing up in a postindustrial Chinese city.
