Interview in English 英语访谈

I have asked same questions to each selected artist from five different countries outside China. My intention is to know their different feelings and impressions of studying and living in China Academy of Art, and their future plan.

Yu Gan: Please tell me about yourself briefly.

Francisco Hauss : Coming from a family of artist I had a very early interest in art. I have study music, literature and plastic arts, being the last one the most consistent and strong. I am also doing painting, photograph and sculpture. I love languages and have a permanent interest on learning new things.

Yu Gan: What is your main purpose of study at CAA?

Francisco Hauss : When reality is seen trough the art filter, reality goes different, but any country way of making and understanding art is different, CAA had gave me the chance to take a glance to different mechanisms of art applied to different society. That’s the main purpose: discovering. Living in such a different culture makes me have a new perspective and understanding of my own culture.

Yu Gan: Could you please describe the topic or idea if the work that you are currently doing?

Francisco Hauss : Every civilization has their own religion and mystic ideas about the origin and what’s after dead. I take some tribes and ethnics groups symbols of god (like north American totems, the Aztec and Maya pyramids and the Wicholes magical beings) and reinterpret them into a contemporary looking idol. Nature and its morphogenesis has been always a strong axis of my work, never the less is getting more social, less from the cosmos and nature, and more from the street, I feel that’s the new direction that my work is taking.

Yu Gan: I am curious about your future plan. Could you tell me a lit bit about it?

Francisco Hauss : I will keep living in China for a While, doing art here for the local market and for the Mexico market as well. I’m part of an art collective in Mexico so I’m looking forward to make some collaboration with some Chinese artist here and my group in Mexico, to put them in contact and make joint exhibitions.
