Hao Jingban

Born in 1985, Taiyuan (China)
Lives and works in Beijing (China)

Suggested by Raqs Media Collective, Artists and Curators of the 11th Shanghai Biennial in 2016

Using documentary and mise en scène, Hao Jingban is engaged in a long-term work of observation of Chinese society. The video artist is interested in a phenomenon particularly revealing of the upheavals associated with the advent of the People's Republic: the dance halls in the capital, meticulously filmed in slow shots that are often long and fixed. Hao Jingban sometimes uses interviews with close-ups, and sometimes films spontaneous scenes or reconstructions featuring all the aesthetic codes of the dance halls.
