Dance of Delivery





2021
Oil on canvas
6 pieces, each 50x40 cm

The food delivery industry is a microcosm of the rapid development of contemporary China. Behind the crazy expansion of the entire industry is the cruel survival reality of those delivery workers: they have to risk their lives on the road with aim to complete the order within required time, running red lights and going retrograde has become commonplace. Under the harsh rules of the company, negative rating from customer will cause them to face fines. Even so, they are often unable to obtain the most basic welfare guarantees, such as retirement plans, work-related injury compensation, vacation time, and medical insurance that should be provided in a formal labor contract.





Peking Fox uses "Dance of Death", an artistic allegory originated from European sermons. The typical Chinese contemporary conflicts are embedded in the context of cautionary tale in the Middle Ages in Europe to express the cruel living conditions of the Chinese bottom laborers.

This series of oil painting includes six themes: negative rating, overload, red light, time, gambling and training.








《外卖之舞》
2021
布面油画
6 件,每件50x40 cm

外卖行业是当代中国高速发展的一个缩影,整个行业疯狂的扩张背后是外卖员残酷的生存现实:他们不得不在马路上冒着生命危险,不惜闯红灯和逆行以求在规定时间内完成订单。在外卖平台近乎苛刻的规则之下,来自顾客的差评将使他们面临罚款。即使如此,他们却往往无法获得最基本的福利保障,比如退休计划,工伤赔偿,休假时间以及正式劳动合同所应当提供的医疗保险。

Peking Fox借助 “死亡之舞”, 这种起源于欧洲布道经文的艺术性寓言,将典型的中国当代冲突套嵌在中古世纪的警世寓言中,以表现当代中国底层劳工的生存状态。该油画系列共涉及六个主题:差评,超载,红灯,时间,赌博以及培训。
