Zhong Biao

" I like to paint people in black and white because people are temporary - they will eventually leave the world and become the past. However, some buildings live longer than people; they continue to exist in the world. This is why I paint people in black and white and the background in colour. The contrast with colour is to highlight this dichotomy. Sometimes, unfortunate things suddenly appear - they become the past, and then the future pushes forward. When today arrives, today becomes the past. It's a continuous process - a cycle. And everyone in the world is constituted from pieces of time. Therefore, in my paintings I can freely co-ordinate the past, present and future. I don’t want to force my own understanding or interpretation of my paintings on the audience. The mixture of images within each of my paintings is like a combination of controversial elements in life. We don’t have to understand everything we see in each painting. Like life, we cannot understand everything that we have seen or experienced. In my paintings, Eastern and Western, historical and modern opposites coexist, reflecting the reality of today’s lifestyle. I have only one dream: That the people I have painted will, many years from now, visit the people of the future on my behalf, taking along with them this chaotic world. " - Zhong Biao

Stéphane Malka

' The Parisian architect Stéphane Malka turned an empty room into a gorgeous minimalist landscape by filling it with the humblest of humble objects, the cardboard box. The installation, Rue Sans Frontieres (No Limits in the Streets), was made up of hundreds of boxes painted semi-gloss white, then glued together and thrown up around 2,045-square-foot gallery in Moscow. Like a happy Cubist explosion, they littered the walls, the floor, and the ceiling. It's what you might've gotten had you put Picasso and Kengo Kuma in a Mail Boxes Etc. together.'
