XU QU SOLO EXHIBITION: INTERCOURSE at Antenna Space

XU QU SOLO EXHIBITION: INTERCOURSE

Duration: 2015.05.23 – 2015.07.05
Artist:  XU Qu
Address: 202, 50 Moganshan Rd, Building 17, Shanghai, China
at Antenna Space

ANTENNA SPACE will be presenting XU Qu’s solo exhibition: INTERCOURSE on May 23rd 2015. This show displays such an attempt to imitate the subtle relationships among nature, culture and human beings. The artist physically transforms animals, landscape and artifacts into a new condition that is more imaginative and paradoxical. It is during this process of absorbing and digesting the “heterogeneous culture” that the artist metaphorically raises a series of complicated issues that all the art practitioners are daily faced with.

In the exhibition INTERCOURSE, XU Qu describes the reality in a cold but humourous tone when again questioning popular consumerism and the fancy of minimalism. In the video “Zebra”, a slaughtered black horse is partially skinned by the butcher at his will. Strip after strip, the horse is skinned, showing the white fat beneath. And the black horse turns to a zebra by the end.

In this case, the friendship between horses and human beings disappears, replaced is the simple relationship of butcher and animal. In the work“Custom Ⅱ”, the main character is a tortoise purchased by the artist as a pet when he gets back from Germany to Beijing. By “turning over” the subject, he overturns the “habit” of the animal, and discusses the subtle physiological change and the relationship of controlling. Another group of installations show the solid and iconic shell of the Das Auto cars from Germany, indicating an industrial standard that is classic and rational. When the standardized surface of the car is “destroyed” by graffiti of the street culture, it is more fun to look back the relationship between the two.
The four-screen movie “Flow” reverses the streams in the valley. And the reverse play of the nature landscape shows the reverse of the time. Being played over and over, those common and transient scenes gradually and unconsciously form a memory that is relatively still yet quite unusual.
