About artist
Tao Zhou (born 1976), lives and works in Guangzhou, China. Tao Zhou’s work reflects on the activities and elements of everyday life. His subtle and humorous videos record interactions between people, things, and situations – touching on questions about the multiple trajectories of reality. In the performance piece Time in New York , 2010 Zhou attached a ball of string to his body as means of recording his movements throughout the day. For Zhou, the decision to use video was not a deliberate choice of artistic language or medium; instead, the operation of the camera is a way of being that blends itself with everyday life.

Archival history

Green Sun: (the project including one film, and series of drawings and photographs) The investigations of the project mostly focus on the public squares in the city centers of both Bangkok and Guangzhou, as well as a heavy metal mine and rural village situated in a mountainous valley in southern China. Bathed in the color spectrum, people in the square are stained by blue rays refracted from nowhere; camping tents mass on the anonymous streets, the cadmium-orange surface of an acidic lake... - all with a sense of “epidermal touch”. Limbs grow and penetrate through the public squares, the skin attaching to the earth’s crust like flesh to bone - he twisted himself against the backdrop of reality; his hair and skin, just as vivid and lively as they could be.
