In fact, there are only few pictures in this exhibition. And these abstract and figurative pictures, often with banal motifs, are absolutely subordinated. It is about the exhibition space itself, and Zhao Zhao makes it a sculpture. With the aid of a diffuse lighting, he ostensibly turns against the classical exhibition design which uses to centre art works as regards its perception. The twilight ignores the artistí»s paintings, it even degrades them by hiding what should be shown. Thus, Zhao Zhao demonstrates in a powerful manner, by purposeful redlining, the deprivation of the artí»s right to exist. The result is a spacial sculpture which does not show any perceptions, but which nevertheless is able to constitute them.

This is the second solo show of Zhao Zhao (born 1982 in Xinjiang) at ALEXANDER OCHS GALLERIES BERLIN | BEIJING after his first solo exhibition in Berlin in 2012. The pluralism of style and medium of Zhao Zhaoí»s works is part of the artistí»s critical approach: In order to question the construction of meaning, he challenges reality and its ideological conventions, along with cultural stereotypes and the dominance of particular, largely European, art-historical categories.

事实上,这个展览里面确实没什么画。这一系列作品以抽象手法造型,以随处可见的事物为主
题,看上去非常普通。展览针对的是空间本身,赵赵将它做成了一件雕塑。散漫的光照效果表
达了艺术家对以作品为感知中心的传统展览方式的不赞同。昏暗的灯光忽略甚至漠视了艺术家
的画作,连应该展现的部分也被隐在暗影中。通过这种故意地注销行为,艺术家有力地证明了
艺术生存权被剥夺的现状。其结果便是一件不表现任何感知的空间雕塑作品,然而作品本身却
足以构建感知。

这是赵赵(1982 年生于天津)在ALEXANDER OCHS GALLERIES BERLIN | BEIJING 的
第二次个展,首次个展于2012 年在画廊的柏林空间举行。其作品风格与媒介的丰富多变是艺
术家特点之一:出于对意义构造的质疑,他挑战现实世界与其传统意识形态,包括文化刻板印
象和多为欧洲艺术的单一艺术史类别的独裁
