Jian-Jun Zhang's Solo, China Chapter Series, Opens in Berlin

Sep 12 2015

Jian-Jun Zhang has opened on September 12th a new solo show, China Chapter Series, that will be on view until October 10th at the Galerie Albrecht, Berlin, Germany. Using reconstructed artifacts, Zhang’s basic motif of a traditional style Chinese jar is cast in the contemporary material of silicone rubber, with deliberate appendages and warping as signals for current intervention. His works invoke modern straight lines, bringing an attention to industrialism and the evolution of computer technology in art. The antiques are partially re-sculpted into contemporary shapes, and juxtaposed with actual antiques to provoke a visual dialogue.
