Shifting Boundaries

Artists: CHEN Zhou, LIANG Hao, aaajiao, FENG Chen, LI Shun and SIMA Yuan
Curator: Joan YAN


Arch Gallery is pleased to present the Summer Exhibition “shifting boundaries”. The artists recent works will be on view from June 19 until August 9, 2020.

The rapid development of information globalization and technological revolution is the inevitable result of economic demand. For the generation that is in the post network period, it has been greatly impacted both mentally and materially. The diversity and fuzziness of personal identity eliminate the traditional definition of identity. People’s sense of identity for thinking and exploring their own identity is a contest between the objective things and the thinking movement. The “contest” referred to here is more of a metaphysical thinking and concept, which is an abstract substance. When we say that matter determines consciousness, we often define human consciousness as a subjective understanding of the objective world. “Boundary dissociation” is like a journey of consciousness running in the direction of shackles.

Nietzsche once said, “the world is full of restlessness, because everyone is eager to liberate from their shackles.” It’s a kind of imprisoned state in which the spirit is attached to the entity. It is also an existence of struggle of inner exploration brought by people’s thinking and questioning about the established realistic boundary. The multi-dimensional experience and interpretation of the proposition of oneself is the source power of people’s feelings between the virtual and the reality. It makes people have the ability to see the essence from different perspectives, and all the essence starts from the truth of the “self”.

The artist divides “being” by constructing “consciousness”, which forms the view of mutual observation between virtual and reality. They use the interlaced perspective to search for themselves and constantly re-recognize them. They start from the natural state of human beings, and explore the naivety of human beings. Boldly expose the nature of human society changed by the progress of time and things.

The six artists in this exhibition, CHEN Zhou, LIANG Hao, aaajiao, FENG Chen, LI Shun and SIMA Yuan, use different medium and creative languages to convey different subjective, emotions through objective phenomena from the perspective of space, sense, history and 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.


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 | 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.
