Towards Evenings: 891 Dusks, an Encyclopaedia of Psychological Experiences by Chen Zhe

Plug In ICA is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Beijing-based artist, Chen Zhe. Started in 2012 and ever-expanding, Towards Evenings is a journey in search of the nebulous space between day and night, light and twilight, the known and the unknown. With a particular focus on the interpretative slippage in between reading and viewing, Chen materializes her fascination with the topic by probing literature and visual clues throughout history and across culture. While each of the chapters within this interwoven body of work stands individually, taken together they constitute a spatial structure of understanding human responses to the intricate and transient experiences at dusk. 891 Dusks, an Encyclopedia of Psychological Experiences is a subchapter of the second chapter in a six-chapter series. It presents the artist’s rigorous research on widespread symptoms of “evening uneasiness” presented in an encyclopaedic structure mimicking that of the bible, categorizing and conceptualizing “disquiet” through hundreds of “psycho-poetic” entries.
