Chen Zhou was born in 1987 in Zhejiang, China, and currently lives and works in Beijing. In 2009, he graduated from the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing with a degree in Media Art. Chen Zhou’s experimental practice alternates between fluid roles of artist and filmmaker. Tapping into the aesthetics of cinema history and popular culture, Chen explores the pliability of language and the incongruous new system of aethetics unfolding in contemporary China. Chen’s latest exhibition was “I am Not Not Not Chen Zhou” at Magician Space in Beijing. He was also part of “ON|OFF” at UCCA, and appeared in the group shows “Jungle” (Platform China) and “Get It Louder” in Beijing in 2010.
