||Zhang Wei is the director of an independent
space for artistic production, "Vitamin Creative Space”,
which also serves as an exhibition space, gallery and platform for
cultural debate. Zhang Wei lives and works in Ghuangzhou, an industrial
city with 9,5 million inhabitants living in its metropolitan area.
Throwing Dice, the section of the Centro di Cultura Contemporanea
Strozzina exhibition curated by Zhang Wei, comprises a large number
of works chosen by the curator, to which she has attributed a compelling
subjective narrative element, thereby giving the audience of Palazzo
Strozzi an opportunity to experience her distinct, personal sensibility.
Zhang Wei is always looking for individual artistic visions that express
a new subjective and individualistic feeling in response to a rapidly
changing social and cultural world. She interprets each of the works
on display as a microcosm in and of itself, a world apart expressing
the artist’s inner life in the face of the increasingly difficult
and complex world. Altogether, theses individual positions provide
a glimpse of the artistic sensibility in China today.
