The exhibition context of ‘VARIOUS DIVERSIONS : Different, Potential, Flowing’ is the process of returning to a vibrant individual narrative after the fragmentation of a grand social narrative.

The exhibition presents two dimensions of consideration: First, the exhibition is completed under the influence and intervention of many conditions and paths, where conditions are both a restriction and a space for creative ideas; Second, the exhibition is a mixture of many different paths, i.e. many different elements of different artists. Each artist has his or her own unique path, his or her own ability and vision to see the world, and “The Divergent Paths” is a collective presentation of these paths. There are no symbolic works of the times here, but rather a collection of many “solitary works”, namely the individual spirit of the “ego”, some of the most direct responses.

“…… comes to suggest what has not yet been presented, what will happen, in the depiction of semantic ambiguity puns.” — Xue Ruozhe

“Shells and vessels.” — Feier Yu

“My sculptures are the DNA of a unique form of work generated by interweaving the characteristics of complex and huge natural life forms with the mechanized productivity of current technology.”–Yang Xi

“Art creation is like traveling, traveling to the end of the water, sitting and watching the clouds rise.” — Hu Qingtai

“‘Button’ and ‘clasp’, both independent of each other while activating each other; I use it as a metaphor for many relationships, materials and materials, sentences and sentences, propositions and arguments.” — Shao Jie

“The sun is the closest star to us.” — Hao Jingfang & Wang Lingjie

“Working with photographs as material always dwells on concrete objects, and my work eventually becomes how to tear apart the concrete image and put something else in the cracks. Resisting the image becomes the focus of my work.” — Bu Yunjun

“What is missed and what is caught have their own beauty; the eternity of art is about countless moments in time.” — Xu Danqing

“If I am surreal, it doesn’t mean I have to create surreality. My body is surreal, my organs are surreal, and everything I hear and see is surreal. We seem to be in the same environment but not in it.” –Pengpeng  Li

“The childlike greed of watching the world and the greed of leaving traces of my own visual translation may be the destiny of my choice of painting even today.” –Shi Yiran

ARCH REVIEW | Guo Yujian :Dangerous Complicitiy

When looking at Guo Yujian’s works, what have been depicted is always in a state of flow, and the secret words that are related to each other become images that avoid us and approach us. The work that takes shape on the canvas in our sight is yet to come, in transition, about to embrace change, and it will not push us away until the feeling is fulfil.

ARCH REVIEW | Gaze in the Dim Glow

“The Task of Alchemy”, Pocono Zhao Yu’s solo exhibition at Arch Gallery, presents a subtle sense of time traveling. As the title of the exhibition alludes to, it is as if the smelting and mysterious deeds of some spiritual objects. Within the whisper that fluttering outside of time, this enormous task is under the invisible dome of time.

ARCH REVIEW | Making Complicity

When the painting is really close to us, the first thing that appears to our eyes is this Le cimetière marin[1] written by Valéry in 1922. The curators Hu Yihang and Zhang Tingzhi, together with artist Guo Yujian, divided the exhibition “Dangerous Complicity” in the gallery into three chapters with words and symbols: imagination, a plateau, and a theatre.

ARCH 采访 | 郭宇剑

从那时起我尝试让白日梦式的想象力渗到画面中去,那些较早之前象征意味较浓的图示也被自然地冲淡了。或许正是因为这种像是被什么浸润过的画面所流淌出的气质和一些与现实相违和的图像内容才造成了类似梦境似的联想。

ARCH 采访 | 薛若哲

“绘画没有办法不诚恳,这是一种无法伪装的媒介。我对绘画的诚恳和机械的、拾得的图像产生的化学反应感兴趣,尤其是当网络图像和铜板线腐蚀这种必须要经过转化才能成型的绘制方式相遇,就形成了有意思的关系。”

ARCH REVIEW | 在倦意来临时服药

恍惚是我们长时间被某种思维或事物压制后常常落入的状态。在这个状态中,时间如流体般被我们任意搬运、搅动,又或是尽兴逐流。而林舒的作品常常通过对空间的加工让我们对影像中的实体逐渐疏远,以至于被送入一个被剥去嘈杂的心理状态,意识取代了被记忆包裹的身体,从而任意涌动。
