Chen Zhen's large scale installations are currently on view at Pirelli HangarBicocca in Milan, Italy, in the major retrospective exhibition Short-circuits. The exhibition opens 15 October 2020 and runs through 21 February 2021.
"Chen Zhen’s art paradigmatically reflects his wish to find a visual synthesis that would integrate the aesthetic dimension of his homeland with that of the places he came in contact with, in a constant, fluid exchange between Eastern and Western thought.The title of the exhibition is inspired by the artist’s creative method, which he referred to as a “short-circuit phenomenon”, which is that of revealing the hidden meaning of a work of art when it is taken from the original setting for which it was created to a different place."
