Xu Zhen - MadeIn Company
Video Portrait for Zilli
Produced by Perfect Crossovers
As an official partner of the 12th Biennale de Lyon, France (from September 2013 to January 2014), ZILLI sponsors one of the artists selected by curator Gunnar Kvaran to be part of the exhibition: Xu Zhen – MadeIn Company, a Chinese artist working in Shanghai.
Perfect Crossovers has produced and realized a 4 minutes film about Xu Zhen – MadeIn Company, presenting his project for the Biennale entitled Movement Field.
With Movement Field, Xu Zhen-Made In combines the idea of a Zen garden (which in the West is idealised as a place of harmony and the epitome of avoiding conflict) with the increasingly intense expression (since this is publicised more and more on social networks) of all the discontent in the world. The artist questions our understanding of time and space: Movement Field has a strong commemorative character, which represents the first stage of a long-term project aiming to create a genuine worldwide community.
