At the Don Gallery, “Cloudy” Works
#Exhibitions

Through the work of eleven of the most capable and interesting artists of the new generation who work regularly with the Don Gallery or who have collaborated with the gallery for years, the collective exhibition Cloudy at its new temporary headquarters in the the West Bund neighbourhood, examines if there is a common language of humanity beyond the precariousness of each individual, of the ephemeral and transitory nature inherent in the concept of human life itself. The works include installations, paintings and sculptures by Lu Song, Zhang Ruyi, Li Shan, Hu Weiyi, Liu Ren, Qu Fengguo, Chang Lin, Xiang Zhenhua, Hu Zi, Zhang Yunyao, Liu Ren and they re-examine the meaning of clouds in the collective imagination, but also from a metaphoric, poetic and aesthetic point of view. Cloudy is more than a meteorological state, it speaks to the human condition, its moods and psychological inclinations. Yet, clouds can also indicate the human manifestation of divine premonitions, going beyond barriers, expanding across horizons, distant and intangible, capable of leaving their tracks on the world we live in, just as artists themselves do with their work of introspection and exploration.
