Song Ta

Song Ta was born in Guangzhou in 1988. He received his BFA in Education from Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts in 2010, and currently lives and works in Guangzhou.

Notable group exhibitions include: Song Ta, The Loveliest Guy, Beijing Commune; Unwritten, Marres Centre for Contemporary Culture, Maastricht, The Netherlands (2014); The 8th Shenzhen Sculpture Biennale: We have never participated, OCT Contemporary Art Terminal, Shenzhen, China (2014); The First "CAFAM • Future" Exhibition: Sub-Phenomena: Report on the State of Chinese Young Art, China Central Academy of Fine Arts Museum, Beijing, China (2012); ON|OFF: China’s Young Artists in Concept and Practice, UllensCentre for Contemporary Art, Beijing, China (2013) and Positive Space, Times Museum, Guangzhou, China (2014).

Song Ta’s works are rooted in the artist’s observations of everyday life and social reality. His practice includes photography, video, installation, painting, and performance, among other media. Song is not concerned with the refinement of traditional aesthetics or expressions of visual beauty; rather, he adopts a relaxed, comical attitude, enjoying the conceptual freedom art allows him. His work often weaves together systems of administration and bureaucracy with transparency and often seeks to provoke and antagonise the established boundaries between institutional and commercial definitions of art.
