BANK is proud to present Chen Zhe's Flown Away Is the Gold of Days - Works from “Towards Evenings: Six Chapters”, the artist’s first show at the gallery. Chen's international notoriety stems from her epic series Bees & The Bearable, which posited photography as a catalyst for examining the psychology of self-abuse. In Towards Evenings: Six Chapters the artist attempts to materialize her long fascination with the complex and transient experiences of “dusk” through many different forms including photography, video, installation, objects, and texts. Towards Evenings: Six Chapters is a journey in search of the nebulous space between day and night, light and twilight, the known and unknown. For over five years the artist probed literature and visual clues throughout history and across cultures that evinced this magic hour’s profound effect upon the human psyche.
