Sun Xun’s intense skepticism of historical narrative and disillusionment with the post-1949 “New China” informs the political and fanciful nature of his installations, drawings, and animations. Sun’s sequence animations are created by drawing, erasing, and recording individual frames and stringing them together to create a gritty narrative about an unidentified and ambiguous era. He carries this preoccupation with erasure into his wall drawings and installations, a metaphorical exploration of the ephemerality of art and a questioning of its inherent value.
