Press Release

No Name | Copperplate Intaglio Group Show

Opening: December 22nd, 2013 (Sun) 5-8pm
Duration: December 23rd, 2013 – Feburary 20th, 2014 (Daily 10am-6pm, close on Monday)

Ren Space is pleased to present “No Name | Copperplate Intaglio Group Show” from December 23rd, 2013 to Feb 20th, 2014.

This exhibition includes newly commissioned, limited edition works by a group of contemporary Chinese artists who vary in their stages of artistic development and career. Each of these artists has begun with the same materials: a simple copper plate and a nail provided by Ren Space. Using these materials, they have created prints using the technique known as Intaglio. (Intaglio is a traditional printing technique in which an image is created by cutting, carving or engraving into a flat surface. This method was much appreciated and favored by wide Western masters including Rembrandt, Durer, and Picasso.)

All works will be displayed anonymously during the exhibition. Only the work title and the basic information will be presented and the identity of the artist will be announced at later date. We ask the viewers and the collectors to forego of any presumptions and bias of names and legacies associated with the artists. With the absence of pre-disposed notion of artwork by a particular artist, they must simply trust their own appreciation of visual language provided by the artist.

This exhibition invites the viewer to question the current complex relationship between art collection and consumption, and to examine the dynamic relationships between Art collectors’ perception and intrinsic value of art.

Almost a century ago, Paul Klee was quoted “Art does not reproduce the visible; rather, it makes visible.” Then the natural question for the collectors is: which of the works stirs you? which of the works makes the invisible visible to you?

On the opening day of the exhibition, Ren Space will sponsor a special opening interactive event; please stay tuned for more details to be followed in coming weeks.
