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.

本圖錄所示的是曾浩於1997年在北京中央美術學院美術館舉辦個展的作品。曾浩和若干同輩藝術家一樣,樂於在生活中庸俗平凡、尋常瑣細的物件中尋求靈感。傢俱、人體和零星的生活用品在其作品中雖隨處可見,但佔據視覺焦點的情況卻絕無僅有,「人」亦不再是凌駕一切的中心。套用中國藝評家栗憲庭的話來說,這些藝術家「以平視的角度去感覺自己周圍的現實」。此書刊載了栗憲庭的評論,文中以曾浩及若干當代藝術家為例,探討了這種獨特的藝術現象。本圖錄亦載有曾浩的簡歷。
