Animation is Cen’s most recent concentration. His debut animation Mutual Tunnels depicts a mysterious journey of two characters in a dreamlike imaginative world. To Cen, the unexamined life is not worth living. He attempts to trigger the viewers to question the social and cultural structures that constitutes our conscious minds. Therefor, fear and desire are the significant themes in his work.
In 2012, Jun Cen held his first solo exhibition in Beijing. Besides providing his audience a gallery exhibition experience, Cen also experiments with placing his art in different contexts. Cen is also embedding his ideas in his animated films and collaborative projects.
