Milionarii chinezi au devenit în ultimii ani serioși jucatori pe piața de artă. Banii lor sug către Orient capodopere ale lumii vestice dar presiunea este și inversă. Arta contemporană chineză se insinuează mai mult sau mai puțin subtil catre soare-apune. O platformă de întânire și de melanj al celor doua uriașe culturi este Zona 798 din Beijing pe care am avut norocul s-o vizitez și s-o aduc prin numeroase fotografii și cititorilor Artindex. În baza unui parteneriat cu una dintre galeriile din acel fascinant complex, îmi permit să vă arat parțial simezele curente ale Chinei. (Mihai Constantin)

“1 + 1 = unlimited” Puji You, Zhao Limin double exhibition
The exhibition will be presented the same period Puji You, Zhao Limin previous two outstanding artists in recent years, sculptures and paintings, they hold different art forms, have their own unique perspective on life, the face of “unlimited” this topic, they are both close and alienation . Exhibition titled “1 + 1 = unlimited,” that in the previous two Italian artists and placed in the same level, so to follow the artist’s works have a more in-depth exchanges, the maximum expansion of his artistic horizon.
Gap in Baiju – Puji You
“Gap in Baiju” is the theme of this exhibition of sculptor Puji You, “between heaven and earth life, if fleeting, all of a sudden it.” 朴吉友 sculptures have short and aesthetic qualities, this trait contains a lot of complicated contradictions , freedom and shackles contradiction, say and do not say a contradiction, the contradiction between dynamic and static, the author and the viewer’s contradictions, etc., in the final analysis, they are actually derived from the same contradiction that finite and infinite contradictions. Life nothing is finite, limited life, limited love, limited resources …… while the artist was always in the pursuit of unlimited, wandering in the limited boundaries of things, and de facto rule forever game, prying nature of the world. Chuang Tzu had a saying:. “. My life is limited, knowledge has no limits, in order to have a career with no limits, useless men Yi Er is Knowing, shaped just carry on,” he told us with a finite life to the pursuit of unlimited things that are dangerous , and the sculptor Puji You want to say is: he is hopelessly in doing so in a dangerous thing.
Drive to the emperor – Zhao Limin
And temperament melancholy and extremely sensitive idealized Puji work very different artist Zhao Limin always works in the best way to capture system pleasures of life, both absurd and true, full of metaphors. Zhao Limin we see in the exhibition “The emperor drive to” works in a surreal world, a series of ancient fantasy scene, one innocent child, and a field imitate the adult world of role-playing game In his works for children hardly insurmountable boundary, but the scene of ancient societies is a unique irony boundaries, the artist deliberately created to take the limitations of time, space and the psychological, the contents of the work toward history , toward the past, toward everyone’s childhood.
Modern psychology generally believe that people in childhood had formed its leading character’s life, and the day after tomorrow is the perfection of the leading character, a man end his life in the integration effort is the character he plays since childhood had been formed. In fact, the same is true of art, childhood experiences tend to lay a layer of special tone for the artists, the late polish, polish though tracing and artists will be more rich and diverse, but the leading character of art, the artist’s childhood actually period had been formed.
This exhibition at the Children’s Day election day opening, it is hoped that through the previous two natures of artists, lead to more people for their own childhood memories, mirror lights up everyone’s true character. 1 + 1 reaches the infinite, it is a complex proposition, but also a wonderful vow.
