This is the exhibition catalogue of Zhong Biao’s one-man show at Schoeni Gallery in Hong Kong. In his works we find a montage of myth and reality, of modernism and traditionalism, and of present and history. One contributor explains this deliberate mixture of classical furniture, cityscape, advertisement signs and Han figurines: ‘This kind of contradictory mix-up, a simultaneous concern towards self and others, is virtually the cultural characteristics of the 90s in China, of the developing countries and of consumerism. Time and tide, like the fragments of life elapsed in the wind, the painter uses his mirror to reflect life under the sunshine and critically examine contemporary life and society’. Artist's biography is included.



本圖錄收錄了鐘飆在香港少勵畫廊舉辦個展的作品。在他的畫作裏,神話與現實、傳統與現代、古與今的交織重叠隨處可見。對於這種把老式傢俱、城市景觀、廣告牌和漢俑共冶一爐的處理手法,尹國均在書中指出:「這種矛盾的混雜,對自我與他者的同時關注,正是中國九十年代文化的特徵,也是第三世界文化、後殖民文化的特徵。歲月如同生命的碎片,在風中飄逝,而作者則用他的鏡子對照着陽光下的生命,關注着鮮活的生命狀態。」本圖錄亦載有藝術家的簡歷。
