Dates: 8 March to 30 April 2012
Guest-of-honour: Mr Jackson See

Exhibited for 9 weeks, Documenta saw an estimated of 19,530 people visiting the exhibition. Showcasing a systematic selection of the progressive stages in the artist’s learning experiences and creative processes, as well as a series of important information, the exhibition strongly reflects how an individual’s life is shaped and influenced by the major transformations of the Chinese society, as well as to reflect on how this specific historical background had caused an impact on artistic creations.

He can be said to be the epitome of the spirit of a professional artist in his dedication to documentation. Since the early 1990s, he would meticulously document each sale, and collectors, for ease of tracing in future.
 
The educational value in examining these ‘Documents of Artistic Creations’, we can better understand in perspective the special significance of the society the artist is born into and how he would cast certain moral judgments and ideals under this socio-h
