Shaire 是野 is honoured to present Slow, an exhibition and artistic exchange conceived by artist Zhu Yingchun with Carlos Jiménez and Aaron Distler.

The artists in the exhibition respond to the subjects and visual systems within nature through media such as film, sculpture and the book form. Focusing on the process of conscious formation versus the pace of their actions, they use the forces of nature – fire, steam, light and insects – to create their work.

The title of the exhibition, ‘Slow’, is inspired by the signal 慢, displayed at the entrance to Zhu Yingchun’s studio in Nanjing, China. This sign greets visitors and reminds them to slow down and consider their environment carefully – setting the stage for discovery.

Organised on the occasion of Nanjing Week and London Design Festival, the exhibition features newly commissioned works by the artists.

Curated by Fangfei Chen and Jaime Marie Davis
