China’s Millennial “Artrepreneurs” Think Outside Of The White Cube

Another excellent article from Tara Loader Wilkinson

China’s Millennial “Artrepreneurs” Think Outside Of The White Cube

Young art collectors in China are finding exciting ways to share their passion for art

Tucked away in an alley off Shanghai’s Huaihai Road in the shade of a Magnolia tree, is a small restaurant called Le Petit Cochon Vert (The Little Green Pig). Enter, and you will find a colonial home with a large white fireplace, exposed wooden beams and red brick walls. The food is in the style of European fine-dining – the sort of edible art made from wisps, crisps and colourful foam that leaves the diner open-mouthed when the dishes are brought in, and empty-bellied when they are taken away.

 

But this is no ordinary restaurant. Le Petit Cochon Vert is owned by second-generation Chinese art collector Chong Zhou. Instead of a gallery or museum, this is where 26-year-old Zhou choses to share his collection of emerging Asian art, although he jokes that he still cannot pronounce the restaurant’s name.

QIN JUN at White Space Beijing

QIN JUN | QIN JUN at White Space Beijing

Date: April 25 – June 7, 2015


As a rising artist, Qin Jun attempts to alternate his concepts between spatial cognition, and a kind of generalized plane of consciousness by using abstract visual forms. For Qin Jun this study has been an ongoing process, which he developed during his education as a sculptural artist. Whether through sculpture or painting, Qin Jun’s work always follows a strict set of particular preordained rules regarding form. However, within this self-limiting framework, he still manages to bring forth a kind of visual structure that is both rich in emotion and possesses an inherent intensity.
Qin Jun’s sculptural work utilizes basic geometric principals like rectangular, spherical, and triangular shapes. The modular representation suggested by his work follows a kind of standardized of installation method which links the elements of his pieces together. Although the relationships between elements in his work appear random, they are joined under the premise of a kind of modern socialized production; the flexible surface of his work is actually subject to a kind of linear logic. Meanwhile, in contrast to the diffused sense of space that his sculptural works create, Qin Jun’s paintings display an inward sense of contraction.
Although his two sets of paintings were made according to different formal rules, they still share similarities. Broken up into basic, two-dimensional elements, Qin Jun’s paintings interpret color as punctuation of sorts for shadow and volume. He thus takes sculpture’s spatial sensibility and projects it onto a two-dimensional surface, rupturing the spatial conventions of painting and reshaping our notions of gravity and observation.

Qin Jun was born in 1987 in Liaoning Province. In 2010 hegraduated from department of Sculpture from the Dalian Polytechnic University, Dalian, China and in 2012, he received his MFA in Fine Arts from the University of Southampton, London, UK.Qin Jun now lives and works in Beijing.
