Peter Vink (1974) is a Dutch visual artist based in Amsterdam, and now spending 6 months in Beijing as an artist in residence at Platform China Art Institute. The core of his artistic research lies in investigating and challenging the common notion of space as well as the artistic potential it releases when the artist uses it as a setting of his site specific works. The manner in which space is activated by the artistic gesture, the redefinition of its identity, its shift from an ordinary to a fictionalized entity are all issues on the artistic agenda of Vink, an artist who allows no "ready-made" solutions but always engages in analyzing the specificity of every kind of space. This artistic intervention specially conceived for the Liquor Factory is an example of the artist's ability to redesign and at some extent direct space. As in the other works by Vink, also in this case the physical space far from being a passive backdrop is transformed into the site where the real action takes place; it plays the leading role in the piece and thus transcends its triviality.
