Opening: Saturday, Apr 19th, 2014, 4 - 6pm
Duration: Apr 19th - May 26th, 2014, 10am - 6pm
Venue: ShanghART Gallery, Bldg 16, 50 Moganshan Rd., Shanghai

ShanghART is pleased to present Chen Xiaoyun's solo exhibition, Twenty-one Poems of Lenin, which runs from April 19th to May 26th, 2014. On view will be a series of recently created works, including sculptures, paintings and photographies. 

With sculpture as its main line, the exhibition unfolds from a virtual proposition, Twenty-one Poems of Lenin. Twenty-one Poems originates from a non-ideological tale, in the end of which, a shepherd speaks to a cuboid: "I have made up my mind to be a silent object."

Works presented here follow Chen Xiaoyun's poetic narrative style, and extend from the most basic geometrical shapes to a strongly correlated metaphysical site, a mini animistic fairy tale, a portable utopian illusion. Meanwhile, in addition to his usual practice of photography and painting, Chen Xiaoyun adds sculpture to the exhibition, enhancing the depth of the theme and engendering a ritual sense. 

Chen Xiaoyun was born in 1971 in Hubei province. Now works and lives in Beijing. Chen Xiaoyun received New Photography of the Year Prize of Lianzhou Foto 2012.

香格纳画廊将于2014年4月19日在上海香格纳画廊主空间隆重推出陈晓云个展《列宁的二十一首诗》,展览将持续至5月26日。此次展览将完整展示艺术家最新创作的雕塑,绘画和摄影作品。

展览将以雕塑为主线,围绕一个虚拟的命题《列宁的二十一首诗》展开,《列宁的二十一首诗》来源于一个非意识形态的故事,在这个故事的结尾一个牧羊人对一个长方体说:“我决定做一个沉默的物体。” 

作品从最基本的几何图形延伸出彼此具有强烈相关性的形而上现场,万物有灵般的袖珍神话,一种便携式乌托邦幻觉,延续了陈晓云一贯的诗性叙事风格。同时,作品媒介除了覆盖了他惯用的摄影、绘画外,还加入了雕塑,使展览更具仪式感,主题更具纵深度。

陈晓云,1971年生于湖北。现工作生活在北京。 2012年,陈晓云获得连州国际摄影年展“新摄影年度大奖”。
