Catalogue of solo exhibition by Ma Yongfeng at Platform China Contemporary Art Institute, Beijing in 2006. With artist biography.
In the words of the artist, 'From 2002 to 2006, I have created a series of video installations and photographic work relating to aspects of animal culture, man-made environments and topographic modelling. In my video installations and photography of recent years, I have proceeded into more interdisciplinary, multi-domain exploration and research, ranging from natural history to animal culture and fossil archaeology in combination with long-term observation of biological habitat restorations, archaeological simulations, geographical models and displays in natural history museums. I have attempted to discuss "the status" of humans and animals, the relations between them, how the animal culture affects the human self and the relationship between artificial environments, natural habitats and aesthetics.'
