Zero. Speaking through the conjuntion between the actress' different looks and various atmospheres, the new film introduces the collage and overlap of images which seem isolated in chronological order.
ShanghART Gallery Beijing Space is honored to present the premiere of ZHU Jia’s latest work ZERO, on November 23rd. The exhibition continues until December 16th.
Speaking through the conjuntion between the actress’ different looks and various atmospheres, the new film introduces the collage and overlap of images which seem isolated in chronological order. Coming from the "narrated" and fragmentized memory of family history, those images emphasize and magnify the specific gap existing between the abovementioned recollection and the virtualized construction of today’s reality, presenting the complicities and multiplicities one may encounter when it comes to the approaches to judgment. Essentially, the work reflects an introspective attitude towards the conception of "self".
Special thank goes to "men’s Uno", the magazine which supports this exhibition generously!
