Zhao Zhao: White
“White” is Zhao Zhao’s first solo show of 2020 and a continuation of his “Green” exhibition at Song Art Museum. In contrast to his western trilogy (“Taklamakan,” “Desert Camel,” and “In Extremis”), this new sequence or story, which begins with a change in color, is no longer limited by place or time; the issues of vision and direction become broader and more majestic, and the sense of time and place in the work are elongated. If “Green” was the preface, then “White” is the most important introduction to Zhao Zhao’s new action. The color itself symbolizes the first ray of white light after the end of the primal chaos—it is the pure beginning to all things.
“White” only has one work, one element. From cotton, the piece extends into an earth shaking period in history, and all past events and symbols recede and disappear into the artistic form. Here, white encompasses everything and nothing. The exhibition, curated by CuiCancan,will open on May 20, 2020.
