He became a phD candidate in the department of Philosophy, Capital Normal University in 2015.
Chen Chenchen’s accomplishment in the art field centres upon construction of conceptions, his works cover a wide range of representations: video, theatre, painting, installation, live performance and music. Albeit each individual project has its own unique theme and is carried out by certain means of representation distinguished from one another, these artworks interact and constitute a series of parallel worlds. Simultaneously, however, they are coherently arranged into a futuristic panorama within Chen Chenchen’s conceptual framework of “Poor Sci-Fi” . That is, a Science Fiction rooted and sprouted from our tough situation – a Sci-Fi that does not derive from anything comforting or glamorous, but from the “poor” side of a complex entity which makes up our real life. It is a life experiment generated from our primitive desire and fear, of which the target, however, looks upon to humanistic future.
In addition, "successology" is a clue to his long term research.
