97 Gallery is pleased to announce Three Years, a selection of artist Chi Peng's works from the past three years. The exhibition takes place at 170 Yueyang Road, Lane 1 Bldg 3 #102, Shanghai. A reception for the artist will be held on Saturday, August 29, from 3:00pm until 5:00pm. Concurrently, an exhibition of Chi Peng's new series "I Am A Little Nervous Towards A World That Is Hidden" opens at Collective space at No.100 Yu Qing Road.
"Three years… each year sees the creation of only one artwork. This is not the result of an advance-through-retreat, or retreat-through-retreat attitude. Neither does it have anything to do with anxiety about inaction, inability or mindlessness. Perhaps this pace was due to the progression between three different frames of mind: from a direct, front-on Chinese-poster-like representation, to a more demure social commentary, and then onto an ambiguous ethical judgement. Although it is difficult to find a comprehensive narrative in such a transition, these three pieces are a reflection of my evolving artistic mind set over these past three years."
