JI ZHOU

 

b.1970  Beijing, China

 

Ji Zhou graduated from the printmaking department at the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing in 1994, and later received a MFA from the Panthéon-Sorbonne University, Paris in 2005. Ji Zhou's quiet observation of contemporary society is reflected in his object-based works, often rendered in photography or sculpture. 

Ji Zhou's oeuvre explores fragmented and whole images, comprised of images of objects and installations that are not what they always appear to be. His series Dust, which was exhibited extensively across Asian fairs and in New York's The Armory Show (2013), explores the perceived image of hand-assembled objects, rendered in monotonous grey as a mean to focus on the shape and form of these sculptures. In Ji's series Civilized Landscape, he explores illusory landscapes created by mankind: using maps and books, he sculpts mountains and skyscrapers in carefully placed installations before photographing the compositions.  His most recent series of work consists of photographs taken of a variety of scenes within a landscape during different times of a day. Through this illustration of the world, Ji Zhou constructs an understanding of the world around us. 

 

He currently lives and works in Beijing, China.

Objectified Spectacle Ji Zhou - Beili Wang

Still, dead and sealed—the monochromic images are silently buried under the thick dust. Ji Zhou’s new series of photography and installation continue his obsession of ashes and dust. Ji Zhou has done this by revising our notion of daily life scenes as pure grey tone; dissociate the images from narrative and identification; moreover convert the silence of common objects into a powerful visual language.
