Pimo Dictionary is an extension of Experimental Relationship. It is a dictionary of our daily language. My mother language is Mandarin, and Moro’s mother language is Japanese. Usually we communicated with each other in English. Neither of our English is good enough to completely express ourselves or understand each other. So we come up with a hybrid of Chinese/Japanese/English/mantra/slang language. The dictionary works as a visual & textual manual for our own coded language and mannerisms.

Designer: Pixy Liao is a multidisciplinary Chinese New York artist. Her work sheds light on gender roles in heterosexual relationships.
Mother Riveris a four-year project (2010–14) for which the British Chinese photographer Yan Wang Preston (born 1976) photographed the entire 6,211-km Yangtze River at precise 100-km intervals with a large-format film camera.
As China's "Mother River," the Yangtze is routinely depicted through idealistic images of iconic places. WithMother River, Preston conceptually undermines this deep-seated preference toward certain river locales and their landscape representations. The equally spaced photographic locations produce no picturesque views or sublime concrete structures, but a set of accidental and vernacular landscapes that have never or rarely been photographed before.
The book tells an epic story of the entire width of China from its western highland to its eastern coast and demonstrates that, in an era of abundant satellite mapping and saturated imagery, fresh views can still be attained in acts of creative mapping.

Ai Weiwei is published to coincide with a major exhibition at the Royal Academy in London—the largest showing of Ai’s work to date. This volume includes installations and artworks specially created for the exhibition, an interview with Ai by Tim Marlow, and contributions from a team of scholars, analyzing the variety of Ai’s output and concerns.
Author: Artist, designer, architect, author, publisher, and curator: Ai Weiwei (b. 1957) is a truly 21st–century creative, influential across a variety of media. During his childhood, criticism of his father’s poetry—he was labeled as a dissident—meant that Ai and his family were exiled to a remote region of China for 16 years.
Following the death of Chairman Mao, Ai left to train as an artist in Beijing and New York. Ai is today an artist of global stature, and his strong social conscience has galvanized a generation of Chinese artists. With works that touch on topics such as imprisonment, borders, and disaster, Ai has often found himself in conflict with the Chinese authorities.

This exhibition catalog accompanies a trio of simultaneous shows by Chinese painter Zeng Fanzhi (born 1964) across Hauser & Wirth venues in Hong Kong, London and Zurich.
Each location focuses on a different theme: abstract landscape, figuration and the intersection of Chinese and Western representation in drawing and painting. Together the book gives an overview of the latest developments in the ever-evolving style of one of China’s best-known exponents of expressionistic figuration.
