Date: Feb 28th to Apr 30th
Spring is the season when all thingsgrow and revive. AroundSpace is proud to present Organic Chaos, a group show of 22 artists of different ages who usevarious media. It builds an organic art eco-system, in which artworks made ofvarying materials and techniques reflect on each other, communicate andconverse, co-exist, and complement each other.
Organic Chaosmaintains AroundSpace's lasting commitment to encourage and respect artistsdeveloping an organic, healthy style and career. Organic Chaos breaks previous display schemes, abandoning the Less is More visual principle in a"white cube" art gallery. The show instead, juxtapositions severalartists' works in one wall, conflating and conflicting varied artisticvocabulary in order to resolve, reconstruct, and re-definine the connotation ofeach artwork. It will also provide the audience a familiar, yet alien, visualenvironment and context. The colors in Chi Qun and Ju Ting's abstract worksresonate to Liu Peng's landscape and He Daqiao's flowers; Fu Xiaotong and ShaoZejiong interpret Chinese Shan-Shuispirit in different approaches; Huang Yuanqing and Ji Dachun seamlessly combinethe abstract expressionist style with oriental aesthetics; Qiu Jia's sculpture issurrounded by Dong Wensheng, Maleonn, and Lu Yuanmin's photography works, as ifre-incarnated the two-dimensional images. There are other hidden cluesconcealed in the rest of the artworks, which can be decoded by observantviewers.
A healthy ecosystem seems to bechaotic at first glance, yet it must have internal laws and a rhythm that keepits balance. The same is true for the art represented by a gallery. Context andclues are carefully implied in a myriad of styles and media. Organic Chaos contains a controlledspontaneity, and a casual order, indicating the reality and direction of thecreation and development of contemporary Chinese art.
