One Hundred Days of Solitude: Salvation through Adaption Chapter I

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

“…time wasn’t passing…it was turning in a circle…” Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Hundred Years of Solitude.

In our upcoming group exhibition “One Hundred Days of Solitude” opening June 12th, 2020 through September 30th, the Art+ Shanghai Gallery’s artists will reveal their attempts to re-create and capture a new sense of life. The exhibition will address, what we now call, the new reality, not as it is experienced by one observer, but as it was individually experienced by those with different backgrounds from their points of solitude and confinement.

This first chapter will boast works with a striking variety of media, size and form featuring new series of collage work from Ye Hongxing, quarantine diaries on Tibetan paper by Wang Haichuan, 3D-printed ancient-wisdom-inspired sculpture by Liu Ren, meticulous pigment and ink paintings by He Jian, photomontages by a renowned photographer Yao Lu, digital drawings by Yang Xiaogang from Tamen’s collective, miniature watercolors by Pang Yun and relief-like mixed media works by Chen Linggang.

As the title suggests, the first chapter of the exhibition will tell stories of adaptation, and of what it felt like to work and live in the unique and unprecedented circumstances with many of the artists being cast away from their studios for months, yet consumed by the urging impulse to create and express.
