ARCH GALLERY is pleased to present Glittering Signals, the first solo exhibition of artist Qi Le at the gallery. The exhibition opens on the evening of 7th June 2024 and will run until 28th July.

At the height of midsummer, Arch Gallery is delighted to announce the solo exhibition Glittering Signals by artist Qi Le, running from June 7 to July 28, 2024. On a long night when there was no choice but to venture deeper into the forest instead of returning home, we become the shadows awakened by the sun. Letting fleeting thoughts occupy the body together, as countless consciousnesses surge in, let them surge in. In the boundless Milky Way, a moth dreams, and fireflies flutter.

In the dim light of dawn, the sun rises, and light spots shine through the scattered leaves onto the small river in front of the house. This summer, like the monotonous bird songs, seems both simple and lively. The home is like the waves of the small river, and the waves are the breathing of the river. Looking at the shimmering fragments of this little river, the scenery of home becomes bright and complex.

The sun is illusory, hanging in the sky, overlooking the undulating sea vertically.The sunlight, like a glittering grid, envelops the world, like a floating embrace.It is said that the small river will exert all its strength to rush into the sea, and the waves are the breathing of the sea. The home is like the waves of the sea, distant, blurred, resistant yet layered. The time spots coming towards us refract into the room, and when touched, they outline the contours of dreams. The dreamscape is fully exposed in clear and meticulous detail, covered in the hasty light that has the eyes of the dream. It catches scattered desires, speaking with its own voice, and the teeth collide again, like the white sails
rising in the sea. Turning over, suddenly realizing that it is the mottled memories sending out glittering signals.

Life is not a series of uniformly assembled paintings; life is circles of bright
light, shining towards oneself, always leading to consciousness. We are surrounded by a semi-transparent envelope, linking this ever-changing, indescribable, inexplicable inner spirit—no matter how abnormal and complex it may seem. These continuous and long lines are my hair, they are the place I return to. Stretching out, I forgot that midsummer has arrived, and I pick up a gun.


“The thrills and freshness of morning, dusk, and night. These practical works attempt to hover over a seemingly familiar reality, but never one that can be reached. This is the opposite of reality, the interior of the body, a temporal gap from a sudden distraction. Much of my childhood was spent in the mountains, and this enchanting, eerie landscape has continually reappeared in various forms—it wanders between my teeth, ankles, and eyelashes, it builds caverns in each specific temperature, and thus my creative practice unfolds.”
──Qi Le

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.


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 | 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.
