Jian-Jun Zhang’s exhibition Time Chapter at DTW Gallery (in collaboration with Art Projects International) is reviewed by Jonathan Goodman in the Winter (#43) issue of Art AsiaPacific.
…Zhang has added a Le Corbusier-style roof to a building complex dating back some five hundred years. The pool in front of the housing complex, interesting, does not reflect Zhang’s additional forms, so that there is an air of unreality to the intervention. Zhang’s attempts to humanize buildings by including handmade forms are generally successful, their subversive air adding to, as well as taking from, the environments in which they have been imagined.
