ZHU RIXIN | BOUNDARY
Hadrien de Montferrand Gallery is delighted to announce Zhu Rixin’s first solo show “Boundary” featuring archival ink pen, acrylic and spray paint on tracing paper and canvas. The exhibition takes its title “Jie” (Boundary) from ancient Chinese literature, where it represents the transformation from the material to the metaphysical. Nowadays, “boundary” is not only the concept of the line but also the distance between professions, between privacy and the interconnected world and also a theory of geopolitics etc. “Jie” has become the synthesis of space and time. The exhibition “Boundary” is focused on the extension of this concept in contemporary society. Graduated from the China Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, Zhu Rixin (born in 1986) introduces a new world through his own perception of “landscape”. He assumes that some geological phenomena happen in certain areas, resulting in a collision between natural powers and human fictional boundaries. The artist creates an alternative world where the conflicts can induce people to think about past and present.
