This is the catalogue for Zeng Hao’s solo exhibition at the Gallery of the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing in 1997. Like a number of his contemporary artists, Zeng is attracted to the mundane, mediocre and incidental motifs of everyday life. Furniture, human figures and other daily commodities are placed arbitrarily on the canvas. Nothing seems to be the focus; humans are no longer central and dominant. In the words of the Chinese art critic Li Xianting, these artists had made use of an eye-level point of view in perceiving the reality and their surroundings. The present publication features an essay by Li which talks about this specific aspect of the works of Zeng Hao and his contemporaries. A biography of Zeng Hao is included.
