Milan. Chen Zhen at HangarBicocca: the iconography of the human body

January 20, 2021

Pirelli HangarBicocca opened a retrospective on Chen Zhen’s works (Shanghai, 1955 - Paris, 2000). The show gathers a wide selection of installations from the 1990s until his death. Chen Zhen focused on the relationship between spirituality and the modern capitalist culture for a long time. His monumental works - so full of intimate suggestions - reflect on the organic principles and the cyclical processes that characterize the different stages of human existence, he developed a personal iconography of the human body alternating the use of different materials – wood, earth, water, fabric and glass – to that of everyday objects: newspapers, clothes, chairs and medicines. Curated by Vincent Todolí. Until February 21.
