Cai Qing (Qing Sonnenberg) has been living and working as an independent artist in Europe and New York since 1989. In September 2007 he relocated to Singapore. As a contemporary artist, he uses performance, installation, video and pictures to express his ideas. The concept in most of his art is the “observer” and “observed”, focusing on people of various backgrounds in different societies. He enjoys the interaction with different people and his works find inspiration in many of their life stories.
Cai Qing has also curated several important art shows. In 1998 he has co-curated China’s first contemporary art exhibition in a private space, “Trace of Existence”, and recently, in 2008, he curated “Construction before Destruction”, the last performance show in Sifo Art Village, Henan province, before its modernization by local officials.
