日常治疗 Daily Treatment张静个展将于3月5日开幕

  Time Arts is pleased to announce Daily Treatment, a solo exhibition of New York based artist Jing Zhang. Zhang's work features her struggle between memories and reality, seeking a cultural identity in an unfamiliar environment.

  In the polaroid series Daily Treatment, Zhang uses acrylics and watercolors to fill in missing parts of naturally-faded polaroid photographs, creating new "fake scenes" on blurred images. Moving to New York and escaping her accustomed life generated a feeling of fear for the unknown. When she took the photos, she indicated the time and her mood in the blank portion of the polaroid paper. In her later attempt to reproduce and revise her experiences, the details of the memory might be inadvertently modified... How can this improvised "self-identity" be defined?

  The watercolor series Daily Treatment: A person walks so deeply in the disease that his days turn into flickering sparks is a recording of the artist's self-dialogue as she searches for the fragments of memory. As an artist, Zhang is extremely sensitive to the physical environment. During her years of traveling around the world, she gradually unblocked bottlenecks in her creation and moved out of her comfort zone. Zhang began to use watercolors to continuously construct images and trace memories, realizing the close connection between memories and the present.

  Zhang's artistic practice is devoted to constructing an ideal world in different contexts and defining her own identity by visually capturing the surrounding environment. When the viewers are exposed to the works of Daily Treatment, they are already separated from the real world and enters Zhang’s constructed realm, which existed to release her memories.

  This exhibition will be on view from March 5, 2020, to April 20, 2020.

  The daily treatment: A person walks so deeply in the disease that his days turn into flickering sparks.

  There is no existence of strictly personal memory.

  The obstinate and unique inner world is often invaded violently by the outside world in an unexpected way and time.

  Therefore, I became my own disease.

  I was lost and kept wandering, saying goodbye to my disease with a victory smile as I acted like I won the battle. I felt like a bird trapped in a glass box. I wanted to be free. In the end, I achieved nothing but only bleeding wounds from my countless failed attempts.

  Those scattered days are utterly not coherent. As I tried to record my life clearly, watercolors became the perfect medication. I believed no one is willing to show their identity completely, and concealment is no doubt a part of human growth. Still, I look up to the simple hopes and subtle flourishes in life; they are always a part of me. As I opened my eyes, I saw the sun dying the woods, in a radiant red; night befalls, flickering fireflies started dancing right before my own eyes. Those were the sceneries that never got to appear in my memories. I began to regret being an unawakenable Dreamer.

  Do you wish to know what defines Love?

  A Solitary Tree.

  An Unbreakable Rock.

  A Transitory Cloud.
