张慧,1967年生于黑龙江省,1991年毕业于中央戏剧学院,现生活工作于北京,是90年代末到21世纪初活跃于中国当代艺术界的后感性小组重要成员,后又于2004年组建异象聚小组。在早期的探索中,张慧发展出以行为和装置为主的艺术创作,而后也在多媒体和现场戏剧等领域进行探索和实践。从2006年在长征空间举办的“局部地区”个展开始,张慧主要集中于绘画语言的探索。他的作品将可读性和引人入胜的戏剧性暗藏其中,同时又反思人们认识现实的真实性和唯一性,力求拓展现实事件及其图像背后的结构。

 

Zhang Hui was born in 1967 in Heilongjiang Province, he graduated in 1991 from the Central Academy of Drama and currently lives and works in Beijing. He is an important member of the post-sensibility group active in the late 1990s early 2000s in the Chinese contemporary art world, after which in 2004 he founded the Odd Phenomena Group. In his early explorations, Zhan Hui developed an artistic creativity focused on action and installation, which his later practice centering on explorations into multimedia theatrical performance. Beginning with the solo-show “In These Parts” at Long March Space in 2006, Zhang Hui’s concentration has shifted to a painting practice. His works conceal eminently readable and bewitching theatricality within them, simultaneously profoundly rethinking the truth and uniqueness of known reality, striving to expand the structure behind real events and their images.
