Lucky Cat Radio – Aowen Jin

aowenI was delighted to be joined by artist Aowen Jin on last week’s show. Aowen is a Chinese artist based in the UK who works in a variety of mediums.  Back in 2013 Aowen was on the show to discuss her installation and documentary project Factory Girls; this time Aowen returned to talk about her upcoming installation Ritual at Compton Verney Gallery and future projects.

We also had a discussion about Chinese and Hollywood cinema and ‘whitewashing’ – focussing on Zhang Yimou’s The Great Wall (due out in 2017, starring Matt Damon) and the live action film of Mulan (currently casting). My favourite to play Mulan is Fan Bingbing!

Aowen was a wonderful guest – she is so passionate and animated, a joy to have on the show. I hope you enjoy listening.
