INTRODUCTION


Songkai Zhou was born in Henan, China in 1992. He studied filmmaking, literature and aesthetics at the China Academy of Art and the Royal College of Art. His works focus on the dialogue between the individual existential condition and the collective memory of public life. He continuously explores and inquires about the kinship between natural elements and human beings, as well as the historical traces of landscapes and objects in the living space of the current technological era. The road serves as a metaphorical imagery in his works, weaving the individual's personal experience of fate and freedom, existence and emptiness. His works span a diverse range of forms such as poetry, painting, film, photography and other artistic media. In his film works, he utilises non-logical implicit narrative to explore the visual poetics of cinematography in the flow of time.

个人简介


周颂凯,1992年生于中国河南。他曾在中国美术学院与英国皇家艺术学院学习电影制作、文学以及艺术哲学。其作品关注于个体存在境遇与公共生活的集体记忆之间的对话。他在创作中不断探索和追问自然元素与人类的亲缘关系,以及在当下技术时代的生存空间中风景与物的历史痕迹。道路在他的作品中作为一种隐喻性的意象,编织着个体对命运与自由、存在与空无的切身经验。他的作品涵盖诗歌、绘画、影像、摄影等多种艺术媒介。在其电影作品中,他运用隐性的非逻辑叙事手法以探索电影在时间的延展中呈现的视觉诗学。
