Qiu Zhijie

Original Signed Artworks & Limited Edition Prints For Sale

A contemporary Chinese artist practicing primarily through the mediums of photography and video, Qiu Zhijie’s work highlights the tension between the forces of destiny and free will, with other common themes including transience and social fragmentation. 
 
« I plan to map the world »
 - Qiu Zhijie
One of his most popular works, Propagator in the Darkness, is heavily centred around the idea of transience and depicts a skeleton yelling through a megaphone from the inside of a bell – Qiu has commented on this piece and explained: “No one can see him or hear him...For me this is about sounds disappearing, about the past disappearing.”
 
                        « I don't only teach art history, i also have a course about Chinese social thought »
  - Qiu Zhijie
 
Zhijie’s work has also taken form through calligraphy-based practice; one of his most notable works saw him recreating a 4th-century Chinese calligraphic work around 4000 times on one piece of paper across the course of seven years.
