Cui Jinzhe: My Love for You Lingers On

Curated by Wendy Peart

Description

This exhibition runs September 17 - November 13, 2020.

Additional Information

Cui Jinzhe’s work 留恋往返 My Love for You Lingers On was inspired by an ancient Chinese poem The Nymph of the Luo River, written by famous poet Cao Zhi 曹植, who lived between 192-232 CE. Cui intricately and tenderly traces this story of a man who falls in love with a water nymph, which follows a familiar narrative arc of an unfulfilled love story. Combining elements of traditional Chinese art with pop culture visual styles, Cui weaves a complex and beautiful mesh, connecting time and culture through the common human experience of love and longing. 

Cui Jinzhe is an Edmonton-based multidisciplinary artist whose practice includes drawing, painting, installation and public art. Cui was born in Dalian, China and earned a Bachelor of Art from Dalian University of Foreign Languages and Master of Art at Dalian Polytechnic University. In 2008, she came to Canada where her work has focused on self-enlightenment, community intervention and cultural integration.
