Zeng Zhe

Another Place, Some Other Time

February 24 2023 - April 15 2023
This is an exhibition about the accumulation of days and months and the constant repetition of the everyday.

Zeng Zhe has painted over a thousand watercolours in the last three years. In particular, two significant works 'attributed to Yayoi Kusama' have recently been made, while the others are mostly 'untitled'.

Along with Zeng Zhe's paintings, we have collaborated on a book that explores whether there are connections between women in different times and geographical locations that transcend time and space and reflect each other.

Zeng Zhe's film ‘Another Place, Some Other Time’ presents Zeng Zhe's creative process and everyday state. A displaced person, a three-year epidemic, a hometown that cannot be returned to. Through repeated brush strokes, the borders of paper and time gradually deposited traces, regular or irregular edges, tangible and intangible, colours accompanying the paper and pigments, appearing in the light.
The exhibition focuses on almost all of Zeng Zhe's works on paper over the past three years as a summary of this creative phase.

Finally, we will meet you in 2023 at Lechbinska Gallery in Zurich.

她时异地,荏苒在衣

这是一个关于日积月累,不断重复日常的展览。
曾喆在最近三年,画了超过千张的水彩画。尤其最近要展出的两张大作品「归因于草间弥生」,而其他作品多“无名”。

随着曾喆绘画的创作,我们合作了一本书,试着探索女性在不同时代和地缘中,是否存在超越时空的联系,并彼此映照?
曾喆的影像「她时异地,荏苒在衣」,旨在呈现曾喆创作的过程,以及其日常的状态。

流落异地的人,三年的疫情,回不去的故乡。经由不断重复的笔触,纸张的边界和时间,逐渐沉积出痕迹,规则或不规则的边缘,有形无形之间,色彩伴随着纸质和颜料,于光中显现。
展览主要呈现曾喆三年来,几乎所有的纸上作品,作为这一创作阶段的总结。

终于能在2023年,苏黎世Lechbinska画廊与大家相遇
