Jincan Guo (b.1995) is a multimedia and installation artist who is currently studying at the Royal College of Art. He is exploring the potential of humor as an artistic medium to express broader social critique.
Through videos, installations, and performance art, he imitates and appropriates elements of today's consumerist, industrialized society in an attempt to reveal insights through humor and irony. The art of humor must return to serve society by holding a mirror to our collective experiences and foibles.
Inspired by the Dadaist use of absurdism and satire, he aims to expand the language of contemporary art with levity and wit while critiquing the social rules, consumerism, and impacts of industrialization and AI that shape our modern lives.
His work has been exhibited in the UK, China, Japan and Serbia.
