ADAHA II Performance Live @Palais De Tokyo from Tianzhuo Chen on Vimeo.

Solo Exhibition @ Palais De Tokyo


 24/06/2015 - 13/09/2015

Palais de Tokyo presents the very first solo exhibition in France of Chinese young artist Tianzhuo Chen (born 1985, lives and works in Beijing, China), one of the most promising artists of his generation.

Tianzhuo Chen uses a colourful, grotesque and kitsch imagery, dominated by direct references to drugs, LGBT hip hop, the London rave scene, Japanese Butoh, voguing in New York and the fashion world, to forge an intimate connection between his works and the collapse of moral attitudes and beliefs we see around us.

Tianzhuo Chen’s characters may seem strangely familiar. This is because they are caricatures of our celebrity-filled daily lives. Everything a celebrity says or does becomes a new mythology and creates a new system of beliefs which fans follow blindly. For his solo exhibition at Palais de Tokyo, Tianzhuo Chen is putting together a collection of hitherto unseen works, including a performance with artist and dancer Beio and the artist collective House of Drama from Paris.

Mixing painting, drawing, installation, video and performance, his works incorporate a number of religious symbols into iconographic elements borrowed from several urban subcultures which are shared by a global youth culture.

Curator: Khairuddin Hori, deputy programming director at Palais de Tokyo

New Associate Show for ATM11, 19 October 2011

Peripheries is a group show featuring international artists from Indonesia, China and the UK all concerned with representing and investigating aspects of Asia. Social structures relayed through the artists practice relay the edges and margins of place, from the liminal to the peripheral, to the memories and traces of the passage of culture and identity within. The works exhibited explore this through themes of displacement, migration, land rights, relationship and religion in a series of works that include Kampong street art, Indonesian pulp literature, fireflies, performative action, photography and installation.

Chinese artists Dinu Li and Xinyi Lui explore political structures and protest within their work, with Mintio & Kabul in their first collaboration and UK showing casting processes and illuminate historical and cultural with Indonesian religious icons lit by fireflies in the search for the ephemeral. While Bambang ‘Toko’ Witjaksono appropriates the local through his use of graphic form, comic strip approaches to play with social narratives in a parodic series of prints.

Joe Duffy’s video installations reveal displacement and migration from volcanic eruptions to landfill sites in a body of work that abstracts narratives and journeys from communities around the big Durian of Jakarta.

Exhibiting artists include, Mintio & Kabul, Bambang ‘Toko’ Witjaksono (Indonesia) Xinyi Liu, Dinu Li, Tianzhuo Chen, Funa Ye (China) Joe Duffy, Carl Jaycock (UK).

Co-curated by Joe Duffy and Tongyu Zhou, MIRIAD, Manchester Metropolitan University.
