You came too late! - Zhou Yilun Solo Show
2009.08.15 - 2009.09.20

Opening Date: 15 August, 2009, 5pm

Venue: Platform China Contemporary Art Institute Space A
Address: East End Art Zone A, 319-1 Caochangdi Village, Chaoyang District, Beijing 100015



Platform China Contemporary Art Institute is pleased to hold Zhou Yilun’s new solo show from the 15th of August -- ”You came too late!”. The artist trys to point out from this exhibition is that “Before the earth is destroyed, hurry up to enjoy it!”

Zhou Yilun is very bold to abandon restraint, face to the most primitive and true instinct of human, and the desire, expansion, putridity and pretence that growing from instinct. He often put the images of animals and humans under the same scene by collage technique, or to dress animals in human clothing. He may wanted to save him own, or against, wave over wave of the desire to control support the entire screen. Desire and the destructor is existing in his works at the same time, and is displayed with a wanton attitude. It is not difficult to find the influence of Pop Art in Zhou’s works. But at the same time, he smartly used the characteristics of various materials and his artistic sensitive to treat various of daily life items with appropriate expression. His paintings are keen to use common elements from everyday life, and to give unusual thinking and interpretation of them. To compared with the predec essors, Zhou Yilun has the advantage in his reflections on the rationality of modern Darwinism. To the orgie modern civilization, Zhou didn’t show moral criticism as a moralist. He recognizes the desire is existing in himself, and to reflect the existence of such a desire. This is Zhou Yilun’storture about the social development process: human’s society and other animals’ communities are filled with paradox, same with the development of mankind, which is also filled with paradox.

Each work of Zhou Yilun constitutes latitude and longitude lines of his inner world. He is searching for the end of this world that was lost long time ago. As the modern people are lack of inquiring the meaning of life. God is dead.The other side of the world has been shut its door to this coast. The modren people threw their lives into the menigtes, emptiness and consumption. However, the light of disillusionment in Zhou Yilun's works is also reflecting his yearn for the hope of life.

Standstill - Andreas Sell Solo Show
2009.08.15 - 2009.08.22
Opening Date:15 August, 2009, 5pm
Venue:Platform China Contemporary Art Institute Space B



The work of Andreas Sell centers on examining the dialectic tension between spirit, body, and space. To what extent are these relationships regulated by the structure of our environment and our self? Which physical, social, and emotional moments are hidden in human actions, what is their significance for an action, and which limits of individual expression do they formulate?

Andreas Sell commissions everyday, almost unconsciously performed actions like chewing or playing ball, turning them into consciously performed activities through some kind of remuneration (money, friendship, sympathy, etc.). Chewing a piece of toast was extended to about 18 minutes in the created audio piece, playing ball against a payment of 100 dollars was finished after 5 minutes. The acting characters became a part of the work, their actions became a piece of art. Watching these everyday actions, which usually do not require any further attention, in an artistic context allows for a moment of abstraction, which makes it possible to reflect on the structures of the activity and to perceive it differently.

Individual abilities and skills are other levels of action that Andreas Sell focuses on in his work. For example, he paid a mother and her daughter to have themselves exhibited in a gallery room as living sculptures together with their resumes. He paid for 30 days of music lessons for a woman who did not play any instrument before and then invited her from Beijing to a little solo concert at a gallery in Berlin. This work places the participants’ own presence and the consequences and dimensions of personal actions at the center of the aesthetic experience. Therefore, the points of action in a person’s vita also tell about physical and psychological possibilities of expression of an individual. Furthermore, in his works Andreas Sell always asks about possibilities for the artist to manipulate. By giving the reason for why selected people choose to have themselves exhibited as a part of his artistic wo rk, he gives his work a social environment. This lets him take an analytical look at the physical and social scope of action as a measurable unit for the social circumstances in which the actions take place.

Based on this interest, Andreas Sell also developed the work that is presented at Platform China. In cooperation with four other people, he collected 6,380 personal resumes of passers-by in Beijing. The information includes the gender, date of birth, education, job, and hobbies, creating a personal profile that states specific decisions and actions in the lives of the individuals, which they wrote down at an average of 1 minute. 3,000 of the collected profiles will be transformed into a visual, abstract mural with a size of 16.5 x 3.7 m. Furthermore, everyone who gave his personal profile will be invited for the opening of the exhibition, with the exception of those who left no contact information. The compile of all 6,380 profiles is published as a book in English and Chinese.
