Curatorial: 2016′ Slow at China Exchange, London

SLOW:Zhu Yingchun, Carlos Jiménez, Aaron Distler International Art’s initiative Shaire 是野 is honoured to present Slow, an exhibition and artistic exchange conceived by artist Zhu Yingchun with Carlos Jiménez and Aaron Distler. The exhibition is organised on the occasion of Nanjing Week and London Design Festival and features newly commissioned works by the artists. Zhu Yingchun, Aaron Distler, and Carlos Jiménez respond to the subjects and visual systems within nature through media such as film, sculpture and the book form. The artists focus on the process of conscious formation versus the pace of their actions while using the forces of nature – including fire, steam and light  – to create their work. The title of the exhibition Slow is inspired by the signal 慢, displayed at the entrance to Zhu Yingchun’s studio in Nanjing, China. This sign greets visitors and reminds them to slow down and consider their environment carefully – setting the stage for discovery.

Acts of image-making, archiving, or guerrilla information tactics enable visibility and challenge relationships between author and authority. Each artist utilises language and the literary in dialogue with image-making to harness the intertextual, as archival photographs and stock footage are transformed through repetition, re-staging and re-imagining. Representation of western history through both image and text, with the inherent parallels between historical and photographic truth – and the legacy of radical image/text practice in the 1970s and 1980s – are central to the development of this exhibition.
