Imagine Shanghai – Glasgow Discourse on Life-Concepts – Lianxi Zhang and Roy Petrie – IOTA GALLERY< GLASGOW



This art exhibition is presented by Scottish artist Roy Petrie and Chinese artist Lianxi Zhang. From their own perspective of cultural concepts, both artists express their concerns about many social problems such as war, animal rights, the relationship between man and nature, religions. The artists examine their self-consciences by art and hope to present their thoughts free from capital and outer value pressure. The academic expectation of this exhibition is to encourage the audiences’ interaction with the art works based on their self-consciences. The exhibition forms do not only include painting, sculpture and prints of computer art which is very popular nowadays, but also the new art form created by Joseph Beuys: dialogue and communication of the artists and audience on the site. We think art can enlighten the wise world in us and we believe in the power of interactions with the audience. The exhibition is named IMAGINE as a continuity of John Lennon’s thinking about the world and we carry on these ideas in our own way.

本次艺术展是由苏格兰艺术家罗伊先生与中国艺术家张连熹先生共同为大家呈现的。两位艺术家从各自的文化理念出发,对当下诸如战争,动物权利,人与自然关系,宗教…等社会问题。通过艺术的方式进行基于自我内在良知的审视,希望呈现一个没有权利资本没有外在价值压力的纯粹思考。于是,能否通过艺术作品与观众进行(基于内在自我良知的)交流互动成为此次展览的学术期待。展览的形式除了常规的油画雕塑以及当当下流行的数码艺术外还有艺术家博伊斯所开启的艺术方式“艺术家与观众的现场交流”,我们相信艺术能开启我们内心已存的智慧世界, 我们相信与观众互动思考的力量。“Imagine”作为展览的名称主要为延续约翰.列侬对于世界的思考,只是我们的方式不同。
