Crossing Ideological Dimensions – On Land Music Performance Artist Ms. Fu Chengjin

Only by pursuing individual freedom and the truth of the world can one realize his personal value and meaning. All people are many-sided. When such words as innovative, rational, thoughtful, and logical become the labels in our understanding Ms. Fu Chengjin, an avant-garde cross-field artist and a famous land music performance artist, we find the depth and energy released from her works are all the more moving.

The fact that Ms. Fu Chengjin was able to leap from the art of music alone to diversified forms of art was owing to two periods of her life. With a passion for music and a music learning experience since childhood, she is a big fan of John Winston Lennon and got to know performance art through Lennon’s wife Yoko Ono Lennon. She then studied at Michigan State University and Kent State University in the United States. While at the universities, she studied the areas of music, art performance, and piano literature. Meanwhile, with a dynamic personality, she participated in many contemporary artistic renderings and demonstrated a quick mind and an exceptional ability to accept ideas and creativity. In her spare time, she frequented major museums and galleries. At Dia Beacon and Los Angeles County Museum of Art, she got to know the master land artist Michael Heizer, who could be said to be the person that got her to start thinking about integrating music composition with land art. Touched and nurtured by Western artistic atmosphere, her cognition of music and art received a complete overhaul by her experience in the United States. She constantly updated her reserve of artistic knowledge, which became the cultural background of her diverse cross-media land music performance art creation. Since then, she has embarked on a road of honor and made remarkable achievements in the fields of music and art, winning many awards and honors from major art institutions in France, Italy, the United States, Japan, etc.

Ms. Fu Chengjin has created many outstanding land music performance art works with her unique wisdom, novel consciousness of innovation and distinct form of artistic expression. So far, she is one of the few exemplary artists specializing in cross-field artistic behavior. Not only crossing the boundaries of different fields, she has also embraced multiple artistic elements, i.e. she has seamlessly integrated music, land art, and performance art to create land music performance art, incorporating musical elements into land performance art, and showcasing land performance art in music. A series of her works including “Desert”, “Ruins” and “Paradise” perfectly embody this new concept of artistic creation.

Her artistic thinking, artistic concept, and innovative art form have allowed her to see beyond the here and now and into the future, beyond the individual and to the collective, broadening both her horizon and artistic style. In her work “Desert”, the desert scene, the renderings of the behavior of the crowd, and the sad music of the piano floating in the air were presented. And this artistic technique of expression with intermingling and complementary behavior and music was applied to tell people that the seasonal cycle and the growth of all things remain unchanged and consistent despite human misery. Only when I halted did I realize with clarity the unstoppable force of nature, as well as the fragility of human beings and the powerlessness of the individual. The theme of the work was a warning to people that nature ought to be held in awe and veneration and the ecological environment that we live on has to be protected.

A sense of broadness and expanse is characteristic of the artistic concept of Ms. Fu Chengjin, who is more concerned about others than herself, more about the destiny of mankind than personal feelings. This artistic concept was vividly expressed in her work “Ruins”, where she combined life and death, love and hate, desire and tenderness, failure and hope with a profound philosophical spirit as metaphors of various behaviors of human society. Through this work, she has told people with a clear attitude, “Art is a beam of light in dark moments, and the common home for spiritual comfort of mankind.”

Ms. Fu Chengjin, a famous land music performance artist, has completed the dimensional transformation from the self to others, and to mankind, and accordingly, her diversified artistic trajectory has gone from the internal to the external, from small to large, and from narrow to infinity. Her artistic attainments and achievements set her apart from other contemporary artists.
