Jiang Jie’s Solo Exhibition
"The happy journey of discovery" is the activity of the Fantasia Holdings Group Co., Limited in 2006 who launched a large-scale arts charity, planned through the year with well-known artists. For art and the means of communication the subject of "happiness" was accomplished. Thus, there has been a contribution of the social and the cultural enterprises for the power of public welfare.
In June 24, 2009, the fourth art project "The discovery of the happy trip" took place in Beijing. The well-known artist of the year Jiang Jie "found the happy journey" as the main executor. The next year, Jiang Jie implemented "hundreds of thousands different faces in a different direction" as the theme of the series of the art projects. This plan incorporated a number of people with interviews, covering all the faces of the cultural sector, including artists, musicians, novelists, poets, film directors, philosophers, scholars and so on, they discussed on their work and on a happy relationship.
As her last plan, Jiang Jie will present her solo exhibition of the forms of observation and the reflection. The opening of the Exhibition "Pink Utopia" will begin on June 8, 2010 in Beijing at Beyond Art Space.
Jiang Jie shows a unique environmental and ecological view as a female artist. In her works we can see a space reflecting architecture, traditions and the reality of a common concern. Jiang Jie uses various materials to express the views of things in recent years. She often uses traditional materials such as silk, cotton and paper for creation, and makes a modern architectural space to create a strong contrast that reflects the ontology of art and the artists’ practical problems of attention and studies.
In the exhibition "Pink Utopia", the artist made black tiles in a pink bag of silk. She re-layered the roof in accordance with the methods of a house construction. It is placed in the interior space of the ground, like the roof of a pink silk carpet. This in order to elaborate a dream, filled with a utopian home atmosphere which is hard to access from soft lies. Under each one of the roof tiles there is transmission of a story, a memory, happiness, joy, hardship, sadness and all the feelings with a black tile which can be gently and eternally wrapped in silk bags, even if the tiles are broken there are still memories of well being.
