Luo Fei mainly pays attention to the daily life situation and spiritual narrative in the context of global capitalism. He regards art as a series of action strategies to construct alternative relationships and daily life situations outside the framework of capitalism. Luo Fei excels at constructing temporary everyday life situations that are available for audience participation or contemplation in the form of service, ritual or play, in plain body language, at the intersection of politics, cultural practices and personal spiritual trajectories.
As a curator and writer, Luo Fei is committed to the development and promotion of contemporary art locally, building a bridge for the cooperation and dialogue of Chinese contemporary art in the global environment. His works and articles are mainly collected in “Volume I of the History of Chinese avant-garde Art thought: World Relations Aesthetics”, “Humanities Art”, “Art Time”, “Art Contemporary”, “Gallery” and other publications. His personal collection of Chinese and English bilingual essays, Starting From Art: Essays and Interviews on Chinese Contemporary Art, was published by Shanghai Joint Publishing House in 2014.
