Lu Zhengyuan is an artist who constantly explores the realm of the unknown through diverse mediums. Beginning with his early work 84 Days, 84 Works, in which he maintained a state of high creative activity and exploration for 84 days, the artist has continually explored integrated creative threads. Through sculpture, video, painting, installation, performances and multimedia interaction, his works breathe life into living perceptions, produce subversive conceptual dislocations, and probe truth, illusion and the trajectories of time.
