New Work - Painting
Vivien Zhang - undo undo undo
Pilar Corrias is pleased to present undo undo undo, Vivien Zhang’s first solo exhibition with the gallery.
Zhang’s work demands a confrontation with the subjective ways that we attribute meaning and value, and the paradoxes of our digital information age.
Saturated both in palette and a plethora of possible interpretations, the artist’s latest series of paintings proposes new, alternative ‘landscapes’, albeit not in the conventional art historical sense. Rather, Zhang offers ‘topographies’ that unravel the many, often flawed, means by which we experience our world: geopolitical relationships, social contracts, and personal versus collective narratives.
Each painting is composed by interweaving diverse motifs and visual fragments, often sourced from disparate contexts. These colliding motifs generate a sense of fluctuation and ambivalence, against a backdrop of repetition and certainty.
