Women as Creators

Women artists are influenced by time, and in the reverse direction, reshape it through their talents and efforts. They’re not just being created, but now playing as creators as well. In this exhibition, artists gathered together not only by their gender, but also by the true creativity. Each one of SHE is creating a world in her own way. The forum will discuss the challenges that women are facing, and celebrates their joy as creators.


Re-sist-ance/Zheng Lu

The title "耳且", pronounced “erqie”, is the morphological composition of "阻" , meaning “resistance” in Chinese, in other words, any mechanical force that tends to retard or oppose motion. In general, “resistance” is synonymous with “obstacle”, as was said by Liang Qichao, a renowned Chinese scholar during the late Qing dynasty and the early Republic of China, “Everything in this world meets resistance, and we call it a success when resistance is crushed.” Moreover, this coinage, homonymous with “and” or “also” in Chinese, generates a new sense of parallel and progression, turning therefore the exhibition into a kind of exploration into the aesthetics of resistance.
This solo is more concerned with the time series, space and change, which explains the artist’s effort to move from the poetics of image-making to the philosophy of image-making. Aiming at freeing himself from the conflict between the sensory experience and the concepts, he heads for liberal expression of the inner conflict. Nothing about human life or the world is absolutely clear or definite, and any landscape or spectacle has its reason of being, so you may run into a “natural” landscape, but it may well be an illusion only. Emerged in the pervasive universe, we experience terror or excitement, but we would still suffer as an idealist if we go back to our origin--- it is doomed to be a tragedy, whether we return to the past or go toward the future.
