For Chinese artist Chen Wenbo, nighttime whispers of small joys, low-level freedoms, fragmentary feelings sent asunder by the impact of propaganda. This volume features his iconic nocturnal close-ups of keys, matches, dice and snooker balls, among other paintings, as well as related sculptural works, photographs and performance documents.
