A collaboration with Koryo Studio with Plastered 8 and North Korean artists. The paintings represent the rituals of life in today’s China set on a stage of early Chinese socialism.

The socialist world with which the artists engage is disappearing; an invasion of karaoke halls, office buildings, and modern city monuments pave the way to a future unsure yet stunning.
