Jiang Jie

Jiang Jie (China) 28

Born in 1963 in Beijing, China. Lives and works in Beijing.

After graduating from the Crafts Department of the Arts and Crafts School of Beijing in 1984, Jiang then graduated from the Department of Sculpture, Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing in 1991, and now is Associate Professor at the Central Academy. Jiang applies a woman’s delicate sensibility to create work that is the result of reciprocal communication between the artist and the viewer, and will be exhibiting a building-scaled, three-dimensional installation at Yokohama 2005. Using a game-like sensibility, Jiang will attempt to map out – together with the viewer – a history of the culture of human survival. The coexistence of “deconstruction” and “construction” and of “this place” and “another place” in this work represents an abandonment of the narrow confines of nationalism and an incorporation into the greater context of the Chinatown Project.
The majority of Jiang’s work is currently being carried out overseas and has participated in exhibitions including “The Long March” (Musee des Beaux-Arts de Lyon, 2004) and a contemporary art of China exhibition at the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Oslo, Norway (2003).
