Artist will be present.
“Away from Disgrace” is Jiang Pengyi's fourth solo exhibition at Blindspot Gallery. The exhibition will showcase his newest works from three series which involve different experimentation of photographic materials, underscoring Jiang’s desire to constantly investigate and innovate with the boundlessly generative potentialities of the medium. Deeply inspired by French surrealist philosopher Georges Bataille’s text L’Érotisme, Jiang conceived his recent development of art as an existential inquiry into the inescapable solitude of being, and the role of eroticism in human relationality and spirituality. The three series being showcased, In Some Time, The Sun Matched with the Sea and Dissolution, forms a thematic exploration and a way of thinking about human mortality through the making of art.
