Double Fly Art Center

Established in 2008, Double Fly Art Center is formed by 9 young people graduated from the same academy and department. Since then Double Fly has been, in the name of an "art center", facilitating activities and art works relating to contemporary art in one way or another. They specializes in a great variety of artistic format, traditional as ink of birds and flowers and portrait sketch, and modern as modern dance, 3D animation etc.. The famous multi-media artist Wang Twoball commented Double Fly: "Sometimes precise and sharp on problems of social system, sometimes delightful and free from the noisy world, they always appear by absorbing all the audience' eyes yet without deliberate actions. They are natural stars, as highlighted by citizens and experts.” While they insist their own artistic creation, they also appear together in kinds of situation in public places, the art exhibition openings and so on, by putting on surprising or mystification performance for people. For example, they once acted as the bank robbers in a bank which was during interior decoration to take away the rest of construction materials; they groaned like pornographic film actress when they was having foot massage; they played with the computer games to group a rock and roll band and perform live; and they did mtv for themselves and made it a sale. They do not think their performance are relating to their artistic creation, so when they are invited to art exhibitions they always do something funny to play in the exhibition site. For instance, in 2009, in Shanghai’s m50, Double Fly’s exhibition Who cares about the future opened like a collection of their new MV Disk and T-shirts; in 2010 Beijing 798 Double Fly Palace, they turned the exhibition hall like a past time dirty theater to show their activity video; In the young artist group exhibition Get it Louder 2010, they made noisy and strong mtv “Contemporary Business” to tease the display system itself; during the SH Contemporary 2012, they disguised as terrorists and broadcasted live to the world that they threatened to kill the arts, and in ase of no ransom to destroy the art works piece by piece. Their creation has maintained extemporaneously, always acting according to the local and onsite factors in a kind of logic with deep and shallow thoughts in parallel. Double Fly Art Center members live in Hangzhou, Shanghai, Beijing and other places currently.
