Ban Zheng

Ban Zheng - foto från Shanghai av Torsten Jurell"ON WALLS, LAMP-POSTS and frontages – everywhere you look in Beijing – you’ll see phone numbers to ring. Often they’ve been painted over. The more I have thought about these painted-over numbers, the more they have attracted me. Various combinations of numbers have crept into my paintings. This year I got round to asking my friends what the phone numbers were. ‘Ban zheng,’ they said. They’re part of the illegal licence business. Marriage certificates, drivers’ licences, Ph.D. degrees. You can buy whatever kind of papers you need. Everything’s for sale. Just make a call to the Lower World". Text: Good News From the Lower World
