This image is a perfect poster for the London Olympics 2012. It represents our artistic journey from Beijing to London. We believe art is free, and creativity has no boundaries.

 

The image here is of our performance Two Artists Run Naked Across Westminster Bridge with a panda bear in 2000.

Working in Beijing and London is very different, in London you get the real sense of what's happening in the world, we are more engaged in the culture and social-political activities. While in Beijing, work is about producing for market, as the world production centre. We try to balance this situation. It is hard for us to make performance work in China, for various reasons, we hope this will change.

Artist duo Cai Yuan and JJ Xi live and work between Beijing and London.
