Xun’s work combines a whole range of different media. Photography, painting, installation art, animation and film come together to form a beautiful whole. Xun freely employs the possibilities of all sorts of art, which yields an entirely unique imagery. He breaks away from the first generation of Chinese artists with his socially committed and politically slanted work. Xun is particularly fascinated with the history of his country. The symbolism in his work, the recognisable elements and the use of light and sound are both disquieting and playful. The subject ‘The lie’ is a constant element in Sun Xun’s work. ‘What is a lie and what is reality, you can never be sure’, he says.
