"In a rapidly changing China, ‘memory’ seems to vanish more quickly than everything else. That’s why preserving memory has become an alternative way of life." - Yin Xiuzhen
Yin Xiuzhen uses memory as a critical tool to examine the political, social and environmental constructs that surround her. Pace Beijing is proud to present a second solo exhibition of the artist on view now until Sept 28th, 2013.

Zhang Xiaogang’s new solo exhibition opens today at Pace Beijing!
“I found everything so remote but, at the same time, familiar when I occasionally looked into the mountains, rocks, pine trees and plums depicted in old literati paintings. My innermost feeling which was awakened by the same mountains, rocks, pine trees and plums has been totally and utterly changed. Moreover, like an apparition, it hides deep down in my vessels. The very trees and rocks have become the storage of memories and emotions from various eras. Forced by the rapid change of time and perspective, I cannot help but feel urged to face up to these things once again.” - Zhang Xiaogang, 2012
