Jiu Jiu 赳赳

Jiu Jiu examines image creation, the ethics of surveillance and voyeurism, and the evolving technologies of our increasingly visual culture. Interested in his generation’s fascination with and demand for novel visual experiences of high-tech devices, Jiu creates engaging films that source images and video clips from the internet.

His recent solo exhibitions include Fantastic Grounds - Tomorrow, Taikang Space, Beijing (2017); Fantastic Grounds, I: Project Space, Beijing (2017); and Making good things go better, Telescope, Beijing (2016).
