For the occasion the artist will be present and a new Super Error publication in limited edition will be releaseed: ” New Real Zine”, dedicated to Lin Zhipeng.
Is photographer Lin Zhipeng , who comes from afar and carries with him his current history. It’s called 223 , as he in art . A whole that is strength.
223 goes fast , hits and clicks , selects and portrays.He freezes the world in an instant, born perhaps by accident. Or maybe not . But no matter , there will be plenty to amuse us in every way.
And ‘ his story is 223 . It’s his party. It’s the misunderstanding that counts. A sly mockery to understand the value of the idea behind that particular photograph.
The body is naked , skin winks, the drops fall , faces speak , the man rubs the man and a pig enjoys over an obstacle road . Simple, that’s life.
The questions do not need answers. 223 fills the space , just look to listen to what it means.
