ARCH GALLERY is pleased to announce that the Arch Private space located on the fifth floor of Arch Gallery will be opened to the public for the first time. On July 22, 2023, artist Xiaobing Huang’s solo exhibition “Flight at a stone’s throw” will be presented, displaying approximately 258 of his sculptures, installations, paintings, etc. piece of art.

 

We will eventually stop flying,
Following a path with an unidentified destination.
This is a journey,
The scenery changes with the sun and moon,
The landform may be unpredictable,
But the conversation of time,
It is an existence that will eventually transcend dimensions.

 

Preface

The history of human civilization is closely related to animals and plants.

The symbiotic relationship between man and nature contains rich connotations of the times and philosophical implications. The two restrict each other and maintain balance. The opposition and unity reflected during this period are also projected into the fields of natural philosophy, social philosophy, and philosophy of life.

Xiaobing Huang  is an artist who uses multi-dimensional techniques to present his concepts. He does not stick to his comfortable and proficient painting skills, but pursues the perfect presentation of concepts – using ceramics, sculptures, photography, and installations to interpret modern nature and social issues. In this exhibition, he uses the animal form surrounding the “bird” as the main symbol, and uses various material contexts for artistic expression.

His works contain discussions on the relationship between nature and life, individuals and group images. In the images of “birds” of different shapes, he blends and decomposes the concrete symbols of various animals. The deformed body, various forms and expressions create different contexts. But at the same time, their ever-contracted wings are the author’s representative symbol.

This is the author’s realistic mapping of observations on life, nature, individuals, and groups. When a single bird is placed in space, it is a collision between the individual and the environmental symbol. And when multiple sculptures are combined into a group image, there will be mutual influence, pull and balance between individuals of different shapes. The appearance of the work is rich and varied, including the color of the glaze, the roughness of the soil, and the lines carved by the knife. These appearances are hidden in the artist’s slightly sad and pessimistic figurative expression, and they are projected out, as if they are telling the story of individual life and the natural environment. The uneasiness and powerlessness of strange changes.

However, the author did not respond negatively to the current situation, but responded with a gentle, childlike, and innocent attitude. This is his re-understanding, examination and expression of life. Viewers will follow the context of the work and experience what the artist describes. They will trigger strong emotions in us and prompt us to continue to think and continue.

ARCH INTERVIEW | Guo Yujian

Since then, I have tried to let daydream-like imagination seep into the picture, and those earlier, more symbolic images have also been naturally diluted. Perhaps, it is precisely because of the temperament that seems to be infiltrated by the picture and some image contents that are contrary to reality that cause the association like a dream.

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 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 | 谢燚

他的作品长期以来从“劳动”这个常用的词汇出发,不断向现实世界里以“语言”为基础的权利追问。“我只希望我认为重要的东西能被大家知道,那就是”具体的劳动“在现实世界中是如何”做功“的。”

豆豆也是拳拳

1985年在北京中国美术馆举办的《劳申伯格艺术展》让中国人近距离地看到了“后现代艺术”的形态,这些展品让中国观众目瞪口呆:山羊的标本,汽车的轮胎,废弃的地毯组成了前所未见的图腾。在展览期间,保洁员差一点把作品误作是垃圾清理。
