Silence Heroes: Objects, as told by Zhou Xun
Silent Heroes: Objects, as told by Zhou Xun, the Chinese famous actress is an exhibition about storytelling and the richness to be found in common things. Through the lens of artifacts taken from the childhood of actress Zhou Xun, alongside those from the lives of current-day residents of Beijing’s Dashilar neighborhood, the exhibition seeks to encourage audiences to appreciate the value in what might otherwise seem humble and mundane.
The pieces selected will be contextualized within imaginary worlds created by Ray Lei and Chai Mi, and accompanied by the narratives, told in texts and audio recordings, that lend them their resonance – thus giving voice to many “silent heroes.”
Silent Heroes: Objects, as told by Zhou Xun is curated by Beijing Design Week creative director Aric Chen, and supported by Diesel.
