Xin Yunpeng, No Problem

Xin Yunpeng satirizes power relations and received behaviors, often by diligently resetting rules and regulations. The installation No Problem consists of a mechanical bull—like those found at carnivals—that has been modified to deflate the moment participants choose to ride it, returning to normal as soon as the rider is gone. In this way, Xin Yunpeng creates an opposition that is never actually realized.
辛云鹏总是针对制度化的权力规则以及习以为常的行为模式认真做着重设规则的“恶作剧”。《没问题》的装置构造受到游乐场里的“骑牛游戏”的启发,经过重新设计之后,参与者一旦骑上牛背,装置就会立刻瘫软,观众离开牛背装置又会恢复原状,以此构建出一种无法实现的对抗。
