Ji Zhou (b. 1970; Beijing, China) achieved the BFA in Printmaking at the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing in 1944 and received the BFA in Plastic Arts at the Pantheon-Sorbonne University in 2005. Starting off with abstract photography during his studies in Paris, the artist has addressed ‘loneliness’ and ‘alienation’ in the middle of an overheated competition of a modern society and exposed the dark aspect of our society inbetween ‘truth’ and ‘objectivity’ through photography.

Ji Zhou has exhibited through “Cityfestival Damme 2019 (Damme, Belgium, 2019)”; “Troubled Intentions Ahead: Confusing Public and Private – 3rd Beijing Photo Biennale (CAFA Art Museum, Beijing, 2018)”; “Dust (Street Museum, Seoul, 2017)”; “Form (GALLERY SU:, Seoul, 2017)”; “Real Illusion (Klein Sun Gallery, New York, 2017)”; “Simultaneous Eidos – Guangzhou Image Triennale 2017 (Guangdong Museum of Art, Guangzhou, 2017)”; “Imaginary Frontiers (Bogghossian Foundation – Villa Empain, Brussels, Belgium, 2017)”; “Empty Seat – Chinese Conceptual Photography (Tang Contemporary Art, Bangkok, 2017)”, etc. The artist work is part of collections at Foundation Boghossian (Brussels, Belgium), Wendi Deng’s private collection who is Artsy co-founder, Zhang Rui Collection, etc.

지저우(b. 1970; 베이징)는 1994년 중앙미술학원 판화과를 졸업하고 2005년 프랑스 파리 소르본1대학 조형예술학으로 석사학위를 취득했다. 현재는 베이징에서 거주하며 작업하는 작가는 파리 유학 시절부터 본격적인 작품활동을 시작해 지금은 현대사회의 과열된 경쟁 속 ‘고독’과 ‘소외’를 그려내는 작업을 이어가고 있다. 설치를 베이스로 한 사진작업을 통해 ‘진실’과 ‘객관’의 경계를 드러내는 그의 작품은 우리 사회의 어두운 단면을 표현한다.

최근 참여한 주요전시로는 “Cityfestival Damme 2019 (벨기에 다머, 2019)”; “Troubled Intentions Ahead: Confusing Public and Private – 제3회 베이징 포토 비엔날레 (CAFA Art Museum, 베이징, 2018)”; “Dust (스트리트 뮤지엄, 서울, 2017)”; “Form (갤러리 수, 서울, 2017)”; “Real Illusion (Klein Sun 갤러리, 뉴욕, 2017)”; “Simultaneous Eidos – 광저우 이미지 트리엔날레 2017 (Guangdong Museum of Art, 광저우, 2017)”; “Empty Seat – Chinese Conceptual Photography (Tang Contemporary Art, 방콕, 2017)” 등이 있다. 작품 주요 소장처로는 보고시안 파운데이션 (벨기에 브뤼셀), 아트시 공동설립자인 웬디뎅, 장루이 등이 있다.
