Déjà vu
by Hanart TZ Gallery
Location: Hanart TZ Gallery
Artist(s): QIU Zhi Jie
Date: 11 Mar - 9 Apr 2011

Hanart T Z Gallary is honored to present renowned Chinese artist Qiu Zhijie’s latest creation entitled “Déjà vu”. Qiu was born 1969 in Fujian province. He graduated from the Zhejiang Academy of Fine Art in 1992 and is currently associate professor of the Mixed Media Department of China Art Academy, Hangzhou. Throughout the years, Qiu works in various concept and medium which includes printmaking, ink painting, installation, photography and performance. Except personal creation, Qiu has devoted himself into art education with more flexible and anti-conventional method by leading his students to investigate the society in different aspects.

The artist Qiu Zhijie has been an Associate Professor of the Mixed Media Art Department, and Co-Director of the Visual Culture Center at the China Academy of Art (CAA) since 2003. By employing his constantly evolving concept of “total art”, Qiu has created an energetic force by combining traditional art education and contemporary art. The educational and art philosophy of the Total Art Studio focuses on self-criticism and an overall shaping of individuality. Adopting a cultural approach, students are introduced to a wide range of sociology, archeology, and media research. Social research, symbolic analysis and events, are incorporated into everyday experience. A complex cultural production which combines action, installation, and live arts, as well as events, writing and exhibitions, is thus formed. These elements link the needs of the individual for expressing personal creativity with that of social concern, and help artists break away from the impasse caused by the commercialization of contemporary art, which has rendered it symbolic and formulaic. Of these, the idea of “how to become an empty man” has become an important proposition in Qiu Zhijie’s creative works and teachings.
