“Never!” —- Chen Xiaoyi
[Press Release]

A Thousand Plateaus Art Space ishonored to announce that Chen Xiaoyi’s personal project “Never!” will open on22nd, July, 2017 in the project space on the third floor of AThousand Plateaus Art Space. The Gallery launches the project space to provide more experimental scenes forartists and allow them to be curators at the same time. There will be at least5 projects every year.

Chen Xiaoyi was born in Sichuan,China in 1992. Currently lives and works in Chengdu. In 2014, she received MAin photography from the London College of Communications and was awarded theLCC/ Photo fusion Prize. Chen’s work has been exhibited and publishedinternationally; she won 2015 Three Shadows Photography Award in the mostprestigious photography contest in China.

Using pictures as media of metaphor,nature as intermedium, Chen’s past works discuss about the spiritual initiativeexperience. In “KOAN” (2013—2015) series, she used photogravureand selected abstract landscape to make prints, and to explore the hiddenreality and rules in a simplifying and abstract way. The series “AnInfinitesimal Wink” (2015—2016) reproduced the image of subtledetails of the world, confused the boundary between the macro and the microconcept, to overturn viewer’s experience of reality. The probe into the realand virtual image has mapped an enantiomorphfor her—eventhough the contradictory perceptual experience freely travels in and out of the‘cave’, it remains the same in essence. Consequently, the original phenomenonreveals things that cannot be revealed in the most direct way: existenceappears to be nothingness, which constitutes an insurmountable transparentbarrier.

In this project, Chen Xiaoyi isstill capturing a daily mystery in broad daylight. She extends the flatnessviewing of pictures into more various perceptions. Experiencing the rupture oftime and daily life, Chen cuts into her own reality as the opportunity andpossibility to create a cave for herself. Standing on the middle point of the unsolved barrier, she attempts toreach a synchronic structure between two spaces, in order to gain a littleoverflowing perception from it. Till now, her art works are no longer toconfuse the distinction between reality and illusion, but to catch an echo thatconstantly strikes and recurs in the never-ending and non-positioning structurefrom the unknown void.
“Keep production as amirror
Keep death as an exchange
Keep the world as a simulacrum”
