karin janssen is a dutch artist and gallery owner who divides her time between london and the netherlands while exhibiting her work and running her project space in hackney.

although we just barely missed meeting each other in person – karin visited shanghai just after I left – she was lucky enough to meet with some of my favorite shanghai-based artists, roland darjes, alexandre ouairy, and stefano ogliari badessa, each of whom are referenced in this article by karin.

the main topic of focus is the CHINESE LANDSCAPE solo exhibition, hosting the work of good friend and fellow-artist, tao hongjing [who plays with the subject of china’s dual identity in his own unique, multi-layered way].
