until 04.01. | #2290ARTatBerlin | Migrant Bird Space shows from 24th November 2018 the exhibition LIMITED TIME OFFER by the artist Ruohan Wang.
A “Limited Time Offer” refers to a special set of items available for a defined short period of time only. From this fleeting concept, artist & illustrator Ruohan Wang developed her second solo exhibition for Migrant Bird Space Berlin. Presenting her daily reflections over the course of the past year, her paintings, prints and digital works relate to a temporary sense of losing control over real life and Ruohan’s personal phantasms as an artist.
Flashy colours & bizarre cartoonish characters in absurd environments convey a humour and playfulness that belie her work’s underlying conceptual bias. Ruohan’s oftentimes gloomy, dystopian vision translates aspects of Surrealism, Dada, even Art Brut, into a contemporary anarchic visual language. Her signature style is based in a clean, straight-forward RGB scheme solely, unfolding its full potential in blazing large-scale images and funky GIFs. As Ruohan continues to receive broad international acclaim, we are honoured to present her newest work in a loud, eye-watering display.
