Sun Xun’s animation works challenge the notion of time, history and narratives, communicating social development through a realm between reality and fantasy. In comparison to previous generations, Sun, as an artist from Generation Y, faces a new set of cultural and geopolitical factors. What is Sun’s perspective on the environmental factors contributing to his practice on a personal level as a Gen Y artist in Mainland China? How does the medium of his practice inform or reflect the socio-political context in the artwork? What is Chineseness in the internationalisation of Chinese contemporary art? And that for Hong Kong from the perspective of Mainland Chinese artists?

孫遜的動畫作品挑戰時間,歷史以及敍述的概念,透過現實和幻想間的領域演繹社會發展。對比以往的年代,孫遜作為Y世代藝術家,面對著一套新的文化和地緣政治因素。從他的個人觀點,孫遜如何看待影響著他藝術實踐的中國Y世代環境因素?他使用的媒介如何賦予及反映作品中的社會政治脈胳?國際化的中國當代藝術內的中國性是甚麼?從中國藝術家的角度,香港藝術的中國性又是甚麼?

孫遜,1980年出生於中國遼寧省阜新。2005年畢業於中國美術學院版畫系。次年,成立π格動畫工作室。現生活並工作於北京。
