Zhang Hongtu
“If Bison Can Dream”, a solo exhibition, by Zhang Hongtu from November 27, 2021 to January 22, 2022 at the TKG Foundation for Arts & Culture, Taipei.
………“Throughout the making of this series, Zhang visited Kansas several times and took thousands of photos of bison and the tallgrass prairies. He also carved reliefs into stones sourced from a local quarry. On view alongside the paintings and sculptures of his latest “Bison Roaming” series is a compilation of unpublished early works, precious manuscripts, and archival documents from his early “Ox” series. By viewing these works together, the viewer will discover the disruptions and transformations of Zhang’s social, environmental, and psychological journeys through his depictions of bison, nature, and the Anthropocene. In addition to the aforementioned works, the gallery will be screening an exclusive documentary by director Fang Xin presenting Zhang’s monologues from before and after his creation of Bison and Cranes, After the Emperor Huizong of Song 907 Years Later, the first work in the “Bison Roaming” series. In the documentary, Zhang Hongtu shares his views on art history, his journey leaving home, and the cultural foundations of his new series.”…………..
