Flesh, Ink… How Is Everything Going There? Zan Jbai Solo Exhibition 00

On June 2nd Zan Jbai presents his latest installations and paintings in Art-Ba-Ba Mobile Art Space, in Bldg 10, 18 Wuwei Road, Shanghai (temporary address).

Flesh color, so-called “novice’s easy color”, in oil painting represents a certain incorrect taste, it is convenient, easy to obtain and seems very cheap. At the opposite, Chinese traditional “ink” is often exaggeratedly given a lot of meanings and today its original greatness was destroyed in over exploitation.

As chemical substances that have passively participated to cultural values judgments, “flesh” and “ink” colors meet similar awkwardness and coldness in the art system, revealing a classic relation: when facing such equivocal substances objects, one cannot help to ask: are you still living there?
