CPU:798 – Zu Jing
Frivolous is the first solo show for Beijing-based Zu Jing at CPU:798, featuring two ongoing series, ‘Taxi Legs’ and ‘Blow Up’.
‘Taxi Legs’ presents the artist’s legs as their landscape upon which various objects from the artist’s immediate possessions are placed for our analysis…For the series ‘Blow Up’ Zu Jing snaps moments from every day life around her, but at a minute level of detail and abstraction.

In the vein of many socio-documentary work before hers, Zu Jing’s subject matter amplifies a generation of Chinese obsessed with the pursuit of worldly goods. Questions of identity and self are also raised. However, I’m getting slightly bored with the “socialist capitalism” concepts lately. At least this body of work provides something new.
