China Pictorial (English) - - CULTURE -

Au­gust 4 – Oc­to­ber 17 Power Sta­tion of Art, Shang­hai

This is Chi­nese-swiss artist Franklin Chow’s de­but solo ex­hi­bi­tion in China.

The ti­tle of the ex­hi­bi­tion, “Zigzag­ging My Way Home,” was in­spired by the di­verse ex­pe­ri­ences and con­flu­ences of cul­tures that Chow has known in his life and art as he even­tu­ally me­an­dered home to his roots in Shang­hai.

The ex­hi­bi­tion brings to­gether Chow’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive works in­clud­ing paint­ings, in­stal­la­tions and videos from dif­fer­ent stages of his ca­reer, along­side Jour­nal, a se­ries of ink draw­ings and writ­ings from his daily life over the past 20 years. Also on dis­play are four an­cient Chi­nese ar­ti­facts from the Shang­hai Mu­seum’s col­lec­tion which greatly in­spired his art.
