Introduction

Zhou Zixi created his characteristic approach of allegorical narrative, absurd visual expression and subtle landscape line drawing, and unceasingly pursued hidden facts through his works. He presents seemingly insoluble complex entanglement between ideology and personal experiences from multi-levels, and multi-points. In his works, he usually switches implicit, ambiguous, and isolated collage images to some positions in different spaces, in order to trigger accidental and unexpected visual encounters; he also gives common forms symbolic meanings, to reveal some thorny significance. His recent works captures daily scenes of various classes in China, as well as various cross-sectional profiles as basic elements, and the final presentations are fragmentary yet vast, complicated yet furious, the same with the course of reality, whereby visual wonders follow closely the daily wonders, and ultimately constitute the mutual overlapping and reflections.

Zhou Zixi was born in Jiangxi province in 1970.  He currently lives and works in Shanghai. Recent solo exhibitions include Spring Outing in Xiaogang, MadeIn Gallery (2015), Late Spring and Early Summer, ShanghART Beijing (2011); China 1946-1949, ShanghART H-Space, Shanghai (2008); Interiors, BüroFriedrich, Berlin, Germany (2006); Happy Life, Zhou Zixi Solo exhibition, BizART, Shanghai (2005).
