7 december 2013- 16 february 2014
vernissage on on friday 6 december, 5-9pm

Wu Junyong, a young Chinese artist, graduate of the New Media Department of the famous China Academy of Art in Hangzhou, has since his initial outset devoted himself to the art of video animation.

Influenced by the great Flemish painters of the Renaissance, Wu Junyong has since developed an entire universe of Surrealist fables throughout a great number of medium (animation, painting, drawing, installation...)

In this exhibition at ifa gallery, his first solo in Europe, which makes reference to the painting of Pieter Brueghel the Elder “The Blind leading the Blind”, Wu invites us to penetrate a universe which occupies the entire gallery space. The symbols of Chinese society are less present, as with his most recent works, as for him, ignorance and this “World of the Blind” are not exclusive to the Middle Kingdom, yet well concern all our societies.

Present on the opening day, Wu Junyong shall work in the gallery for another 10 days to create new works in situ.

Wu Junyong was born in 1978 in Fujian province (China).

In 2000 Wu Junyong had first graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Printmaking at the prestigious China Academy of Art in Hangzhou. In 2005, he obtained a Master of Fine Arts in New Media Arts Department newly founded and directed by Zhang Peili, considered as the Father of Chinese Video Art .

Since 2005, Wu Junyong is an instructor at the Mixed Media Department of China Academy of Art.

Wu Junyong has held several solo exhibitions in Greater China including one at ifa gallery (Shanghai) in 2010, and the USA. He recently participated at an exhibition at the Groninger Museum in the Netherlands, the Asia Pacific Triennial Cinema Retrospective in Australia, the Shadows Chinese Independent Cinema festival in France, the 9th Shanghai Biennal and several other exhibitions.

Wu Junyong lives between Beijing and Hangzhou (China).
