“Away from Disgrace” is Jiang Pengyi’s fourth solo exhibition at Blindspot Gallery. The exhibition will showcase his newest works from three series which involve different experimentation of photographic materials, underscoring Jiang’s persistance to constantly investigate and innovate with the boundlessly generative potentialities of the medium. Deeply inspired by French surrealist philosopher Georges Bataille’s text L’Erotisme (1957), Jiang conceived his recent artistic development as an existential inquiry into the solitude of being, and the role of sexuality in human relationality and spirituality. The three series being showcased, The Sun Matched with the Sea, Dissolution and In Some Time form a thematic exploration and a way of thinking about human mortality through the making of art.
