Qiu Zhijie

° 1969

Born in Fujian (CN).

Qiu Zhijie makes conceptual maps portraying the complex relations of histories, ideologies, innovations and culture in the world. His maps are often large-scale drawings often in traditional ink. Seemingly charting physical territory, on closer inspection they draw us into this web of concepts and histories. Working with the concept of what the artist names Total Art – art that seeks to encompass philosophies and systems of thought from across time and space – the artist uses his art as a lens for viewing the effects of globalisation in China and around the world.
