FQ Projects is very pleased to announce “A Common Place” opens on 4 November 2017, runs till 7 January 2018, showcasing artists Angel Xu, Brian Michael Reed, and Chai Yiming’s newest works. The exhibition will show how the three artists using the most mundane common objects to present issues relating to power, authorization and humanities.

The artist Angel Xu chooses daily commercial items such as Toilet Paper and Paper Clips to discuss the value and relationship between collective and individual. The toilet paper series makes Xu get a nickname “the Queen of Toilet paper” from the medias, it may be hard to imagine that she needs to do a lengthy research among all types and brands of toilet paper and also which kinds of brush are most suitable for the specific toilet paper.

Chai Yiming wanders around in his never-ending game tirelessly, absorbing everything he sees, hears and touched into art. All kinds of media, materials and forms could be used in his game field for painting: cigarette boxes, newspapers, colored clay, plastic models to shimmering powders, and etc. The works exhibited in this exhibition includes not only his latest works made of light clays but also his “recreation” on his previous works. When you look at the works, you will be surprised by his wild ability on his art.

Brian Michael Reed is an American conceptual artist who first came to China in 2012 to have experiences with Chinese visual culture and history through various artist-in-residence programs.  Reed discovered many themes that interested him about China; however, none were more potent than the metaphoric power of the Lotus. The lotus installation he creates specially for this exhibition shows us how a foreigner can cultivate cultural communication using art to reveal and express the symbolic lotus in new ways.

 

非青计划荣幸地邀请到艺术家Brian Reed、柴一茗、许开娇,呈现展览“司空见惯”。在我们日新月异而见惯不怪的当今社会,三位艺术家各自呈现了如何运用常见到被忽视的材料,与陈旧到不想被提起的话题,而巧妙演绎出类似于权势、人性和人文的宏大主题。

许开娇的作品提取日常生活中被忽略、遗忘的材料,例如“卫生纸”、“回形针”等。通过对这类商业社会的消费品的转化及加工,从极小的角度以讨论集体与个体的价值与关系。她的纸巾系列作品让她在媒体那里得到一个美誉“厕纸女王”。你或许很难想象,研究每一个品牌的厕纸、到每一种颜料或者每一种笔在某个品牌的厕纸上会产生什么样的效果也是她创作过程中不可回避的功课。

柴一茗的作品宛若重新编码的志怪天书,对他来说,一切媒介、素材、形式都可成为其游戏的疆域。此次展出的作品中既有他最新创作的以超轻黏土为主要媒材的系列作品,也有他对于过去所作的作品的“改造”,无论是对杂志、报纸、纸盒、丙烯还是彩泥的运用,都在无视规则中又充满着包容与释放感。

Brian Reed艺术创作中的在地性成为他近几年作为艺术家旅居各国的一大特色,尤其是自2012年第一次来到中国后,他对中国的许多事情感兴趣,然而,没有一个能比得上莲花,莲花对于他来说是个非常复杂的隐喻,既纯洁又污秽,莲花的二元性也存在于他的体内。本次结合非青计划展场为老房子的特点,特别制作了一组以莲藕为主题的陶瓷装置。
