In Between Days IX: Group Exhibition by Gallery Artists

Tan Danwu, TuCho, Wang Haichuan, Zhang Wen, Zhang Zhenxue

20th June - 31st August, 2019

191 South Suzhou Road, Huangpu District, Shanghai, China, 200002

Between Spring and Autumn, these are the days of high suns and short nights, of adventure, excitement, and exploration! Art+ Shanghai Gallery’s ninth edition of summer group exhibition series In Between Days is unveiling a new and intriguing array of paintings, sculptures, and installations from seven artists. As usual, there will be surprises.

The exhibition will mark two Chinese artists Ouyang Sulong’s and Sha Shuang’s first collaboration with Art+ Shanghai Gallery. Ouyang Sulong’s 3-D printed sculptures set the innovative mood of the exhibition. Sha Shuang’s immersive installation presents an unusual mode of artistic narration. Camouflaging an actual physical space, reminiscent of a living room by means of the continuous and seamless portrayal of graphics on various planes and surfaces, the artist examines the concept of standard and standardization.

Other gallery artists that are showcased during In Between Days IX surprise with a new choice of media or a completely different style of artistic expression.

Zhang Zhenxue surprises with a metamorphosis of his artistic language. His thickly impastoed surfaces gave way to similarly expressive intricately cut figurations in stainless steel and enamel.

The exhibition also brings to Shanghai the latest works from Wang Haichuan, whose furniture installation "Tongyuanju: Seven Days" has been previously featured in the 11th Shanghai Biennale. Wang Haichuan’s installations of wooden doors, embellished with the surrealistic motives and peculiar found objects, are inviting the viewers to the world of dreams and encouraging subconscious to come to the surface.

Chinese female artist Zhang Wen is unveiling a new series of works painted after giving birth to her first child. The artist induces her latest brush paintings with ever more joy, playfulness, sense of adventure and childlike innocence.

A representative of the new generation of sculpture artists in China Tan Danwu will unveil two new works of intricate porcelain relief installations. Filigree lines of black on white porcelain remind of delicate ink brushstrokes of traditional Chinese calligraphy or ink paintings come to symbolize the fragility of modern urban structures.

One of TuCho’s silk robes sculptures has gone through a transformation recently and will be presented at the exhibition for the time boasting its new look. TuCho’s silk robe series is a beautiful ensemble of silk cocoons, mulberry paper, calligraphy, and authentic fragments of Qing or Ming dynasty embroidery.

A clever combination of technology and skill, knowledge, aesthetics, and concept is a distinctive characteristic of this summer showcase. An array of works on show demonstrates the magnitude of creative thought, the diversity and complexity of ideas of Chinese emerging and established artists that the gallery represents.
