The Plane of Rewrit­ing

This ex­hi­bi­tion ex­plores the ges­tures of rewrit­ing as a trans­for­ma­tion process of self-re­newal, where new traces are cre­ated on top of past de­bris. The ex­hi­bi­tion brings to­gether eight Chi­nese artists whose works il­lu­mi­nate the idea of writ­ing, rewrit­ing and eras­ing as a thread of meta­phys­i­cal ac­tion con­nected to a per­son­al­ized sce­nario in art cre­ation. In the ac­tion of rewrit­ing, the au­di­ence en­coun­ters the artists’ deep con­tem­pla­tion, re­flec­tion and trans­for­ma­tion that in­form their ev­ery­day ex­is­tence in the world with­out pre­sup­pos­ing any tele­o­log­i­cal goals.

Shang­hai 2002

The women of China are of­ten pic­tured with an out­dated, stereo­typ­i­cal im­age of sub­mis­sive and sub­ju­gated ladies, qui­etly wait­ing at the beck and call of men. Through­out China, the women of Shang­hai are renowned for be­ing beau­ti­ful and del­i­cate crea­tures. But at home they are known as “tricky wives” who make their hus­bands do as they say. At the of­fice, they are re­lent­less pro­fes­sion­als who dis­play equal, if not more, com­pet­i­tive­ness than men. These women like­wise take the lead all over China in fash­ion, dis­play­ing such deco­rous and au­da­cious tastes to keep the coun­try watch­ing. In a tour de force through this an­cient city and fa­bled cul­ture, Bet­tina Rheims and Serge Bramly beau­ti­fully stage pho­to­graphs of real women from all walks of life. En­gaged in an ar­dent search for the spirit of Shang­hai’s women, Rheims and Bramly in­stead found a place so fast-paced, so quickly evolv­ing, that their quest was ren­dered moot.

Zhou Li Shadow of the Wind

Yuz Mu­seum is hon­ored to present Zhou Li’s solo ex­hi­bi­tion

Shadow of the Wind start­ing Fe­bru­ary 25. It is the artist’s first solo ex­hi­bi­tion af­ter 16 years of ex­plo­ration since her last solo ex­hi­bi­tion in 2001. This ex­hi­bi­tion will con­cen­trate on her new paint­ings, made within the past two years. In a rec­tan­gu­lar 1,000 squareme­ter hall, the paint­ings along with a sound in­stal­la­tion that will build a spa­tial field sym­bol­iz­ing a heart as the core of the ex­hi­bi­tion. Rather than see­ing them as still im­ages, the lines and spa­ces of Zhou’s works move and change their sense of dis­tance. The over­all rhythm, the tex­tures of the lines and a mi­cro world opened up by de­tails form dif­fer­ent lay­ers of vi­sions. The beauty of her work is dig­ni­fied and el­e­gant, as it comes from her fo­cus on the phi­los­o­phy of mind and ex­plo­rations of the in­ner con­science it­self.

Date: Fe­bru­ary 25 to June 4, 10 am to 9 pm from Tues­days through Sun­days, 10 am to mid­night on Fri­days and Satur­days, closed on Mon­days
