1970s, many of which have rarely or never been exhibited publicly. Without official endorsement, Li practiced art as a member of the Yuyuantan Lake School of painting in the 1970s, and later joined the No Name (Wuming) Art Group. During this period, the artist focused on subject matter that she would revisit throughout her practice: courtyards, pagodas, city streets, country roads, and architecture. In her recent paintings, many of the scenes are derived from her extensive travels outside of China. The presentation’s two sections interlace as a reference for Li’s body of work.
Li Shan is a self-taught artist whose diverse practice shaped the early avant-grade movement in China.
News | “Bonsai ”by ZHANG Ruyi inLos Angeles
Venue: François Ghebaly Gallery Los Angeles
Duration: 2/2 - 3/10, 2019
François Ghebaly is proud to present Bonsai, Shanghai-based artist Zhang Ruyi’s first solo exhibition in the United States. The exhibition consists of an architectural space in which mundane building materials like cement, steel, and ceramic tiles are reconfigured into a built environment made strange. Doorways are compressed, rubble grows thorns, water seems to flow sideways. Through her collision of interior architecture, desert flora, and the human body, Zhang creates space to consider the individual psyche and the built world through which it is channeled.
In Bonsai, Zhang segments, recombines, and reorients elements of domestic architecture. Approaching the exhibition space compositionally, she extends certain geometric vectors using drywall, tile, and pigmented grout. The gleaming white tiles evoke two significant domestic spaces: the kitchen and the washroom. Zhang juxtaposes the associates of each; the kitchen stands for hosting, public performance, and the extension of the outside world into the self, whereas the washroom stands for the personal, the interior, and aloneness. Both are associated with cleanliness and soiling. Tile becomes a metonym–a conceptual stand-in–for broad ideas of how materials articulate personal and public space within the constructed world.
