Artist

Qiu Zhijie

Qiu Zhijie is known for his calligraphy, photography and video-installation works.
His art practice incorporates various media: sculpture, painting, printmaking, photography, video as well as performance and installation. In his work he often intertwines the humanist practice embedded in the aesthetic legacy of the Chinese art tradition with political narratives and critical theories dominant in international modern and contemporary art. Contributing vastly to both discourses, he also works on bridging the two value systems. His work often touches upon political and social history as well as current affairs. Through juxtaposition of traditional techniques with conceptual forms, Qiu Zhijie’s work aims at rereading and reinterpreting existing sociopolitical narratives and creating a space for a potential debate.
