Shen Wei featured in Alienation?
Opening Reception: 14 November 2020, 6-8pm
Eli Klein Gallery presents a group exhibition of 8 Chinese contemporary artists currently residing in New York, featuring 16 works completed in a multitude of mediums including painting, video, photography, and sculpture. Whereas direct references to social phenomena tend to rise and fade quickly, it is the ideas and rules we extrapolate and derive from these events that actually guide mankind towards the future. Alienation? invites its audience to inquire beneath what lies on the surface, whether it’s a pandemic or social justice movements, to investigate the relationship between individuals and what they have created.
In Shen Wei's Self-portrait (Burn), included in the exhibition, he incorporates himself as part of the object to create an unconventional self-portrait. The image shows a burn on his leg from an automobile accident which is disguised amoungst the fruits set around it.
