Artist Reception – Zang Kunkun

  • Mai 36 Galerie 37 Rämistrasse Zürich, ZH, 8001 Switzerland (map)

Mai 36 Galerie is delighted to announce the solo exhibition of artist Zang Kunkun (*1986 in Qingdao, China). The show, comprising of works from 2015-2017, will span two floors, including the main gallery as well as the newly opened spaces. After joining a well received group show at Mai 36 Showroom and a successful introduction of his works during Art Basel Hong Kong, Art Basel and FIAC, this will be his first solo exhibition outside Asia. 

At first glance, it is perhaps Zang’s painstakingly meticulous way of planning and executing each single step of his work rather than a signature style to his name that holds his oeuvre together. Indeed, the artist prefers working sequentially rather than serially, leading to a spectrum of visually different work groups existing at once. However, his conceptual approach that contains a deep artistic revelation, his unconventional perspective and use of materials, and the technique of continuously editing his works until they reach his standard of perfection, form an overall theme that leave his works with his fingerprint. Thus, each work could be looked at as a coherent object in itself and, simultaneously, as a meaningful link in the context as a whole.
