Gallery Perrotin

 

Chen Zhen (1955, Shanghai, China – 2000, Paris, France) is regarded as one of the leading exponents of the Chinese avantgarde and an emblematic international figure of contemporary art. The exhibition, which will occupy all spaces at Galerie Perrotin in Paris, offers a rereading of Chen Zhen’s oeuvre, bringing together approximately 30 iconic works created from 1980 onwards, including several major installations, among which “Le Bureau de change” (1996-2004), conceived by the artist in 1996 and produced after his death. The artist’s immensely rich universe draws from 30 years of personal experience and radically different environments, after going through the Cultural Revolution, the Chinese economic reform and 15 years of living in the West. The work of Chen Zhen offers multiple ways of interpretation, presenting a sometimes dreamlike and unsettling vision of the world, turned towards an enrichment of interior life.
