UNTITLED, ART 2020
Venue: Pier 35, 1454 The Embarcadero, San Francisco
Exhibition Period: January 17 – 19, 2020
The Chinese Culture Center of San Francisco presented a solo booth by Stella Zhang at the UNTITLED Art Fair in San Francisco. "Incursion" explores the damage of "body" through multi-dimensional sclptural works and ink paintings to reflect contemporary political, environmental, and psychological conditions. UNTITLED Art Fair is an international, curated art fair founded in 2012 that focuses on curatorial balance and integrity across all disciplines of contemporary art.
Incursion is not only physical, but psychological. It could be an obvious intrusion or collision, a slow infiltration or a kind of nervous disorder. The violation of physical rights and moral rights originate from political and cultural violence. The body is a way through which we communicate with culture, but is also an inherently private matter. The body collects information everywhere, whether it’s from a catastrophic crash, hidden signal or subtle warning. Made of skin and blood, our bodies are soft and easy to stretch or manipulate. The body is highly sensory and when invaded, the intrusion causes damage to the skin through the distribution of neurons connected to the skin, bones, joints and internal organs. This process affects our judgment, informing our response and through the body's response, people develop a specific feeling or emotion. It is a broad, fast, accurate, and profound experience.
