Towering skyscrapers, manned space flights, the Olympics...From some angles, the new China is a country of dreams fulfilled, of glory and pride. But with new pleasures come new desires, new utopias to imagine just around the bend. These "Fancy Dreams" from 10 young artists ask, "What next?" The collective work, which recently showed in Beijing, merges into a multicolored playground: installations, videos, photographs and traditional forms entwine so that the barriers and the borders among them melt away. The spectator finds himself at a fun fair or an amusement park, where art becomes a relief from its own political questions, an aesthetic pleasure as much as an intriguing set of ideas.
