Make Believe…

2010/3/31 – 2010/5/15
Iniva at Rivington Place, London
in collaboration with Platform China Contemporary Art Institute

Curator: David Thorp

Platform China in collaboration with Iniva ( Institute of International Visual Arts) presents emerging Chinese artist Jia Aili’s first solo exhibition in Europe, Make Believe…

The show is part of two artists’ solo shows Counterpoints, Lu Chunsheng and Jia Aili,   curated by David Thorp, and will exhibit at Iniva at Rivington Place, London  from the 31st March till the 15th May 2010.

Jia Aili presents monumental new paintings and an installation specially created for the window overlooking Rivington Street. The site-specific piece is inspired by 16th-century painter Caravaggio’s famous painting The Incredulity of Saint Thomas. In his work Jia Aili uses a muted colour palette and quick brushwork, conjuring up the disorientating emotions felt in a developing society.

Living and working in Beijing, Jia Aili narrates private moods rather than public events or modern day China. His intense and emotionally charged work reflects on the human condition, and the individual’s vulnerability in a rapidly changing society.

Jia Aili was born in 1979 and attended Lu Xun Academy of Fine Art in Shenyang in North East China. He has had solo exhibitions at Sh Contemporary 09, Shanghai (2009); Michael Ku Gallery, Taipei (2009); DoART, Beijing (2008) and Platform China Contemporary Art Institute Beijing (2007). He has exhibited in many group exhibitions across China, as well as in Puerto Rico CIRCA 10, Puerto Rico (2010) and in The Frank-Suss Collection at Saatchi Gallery, UK; Jungle- A Close Up Focus on Chinese Contemporary Art Trends, Platform China Contemporary Art Institute Beijing (2010);10 Years, LuXun, Academy of Fine Arts, Shenyang, China (2009); Simon Franks and Rob Suss Collection show, London, UK (2008); Hong Kong International Art Fair, Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Center, Hong Kong (2008); Subtlety, Platform China, Beijing, China (2008); Looking for Me, Minsheng Center for Contemporary Art, Shanghai, China (2008); Making Time, Waiting for the answer, DoART, Beijing, China (2007); Beyond Image – Chinese New Painting, Shanghai Art Museum, Shanghai, China (2007); Removing the Ladder, Platform China Contemporary Art Institute, Beijing, China (2006); Hold on and Break Through, China National Museum, Beijing, China (2006).

Opened in 2007, Iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts) is UK's first permanent public space dedicated to culturally-diverse visual arts and photography. Iniva engages with new ideas and emerging debates in the contemporary visual arts, reflecting in particular the cultural diversity of contemporary society.  (www.iniva.org)
