"Yuz Museum has always adhered to the founding tenet of “leading the world’s attention to Shanghai”; opening a window to the world for Chinese audiences and bridging the distance between distinct cultures and individuals. Simultaneously, the museum seeks to take advantage of various materials, media, and technology to extend the potential of art in the era of mechanical reproduction, explore the new possibilities of art as a result of modern science and modern practice, and blend into the lives of visitors through diverse interpretations. We are pleased to continue the museum’s curatorial concept through this exhibition and to provide a rich and artistic journey to the audience through interactive artworks by nine different artists." - Justine Alexandria, Yuz Museum Acting CEO
"We are very pleased to present this exhibition in a new configuration from the Royal Palace in Milan to the prestigious Yuz Museum in Shanghai. It is a true example of the strong Alcantara’s belief in the mutual exchange and contamination between Western and Eastern culture, in particular in the world of Contemporary Art. This project clearly reaffirms our values and identity through a series of collaborations developing a unique approach with the world of art and building a genuine dialogue with artists, curators, museums and cultural institutions throughout the world." - Andrea Boragno, Chairman and CEO of Alcantara S.p.A
The microscopic reality placed before us by Aaajiao, the zoomorphic geometries of Iris van Herpen. The world altered by the mysterious chimera of Andrea Anastasio and the thick spider webs of Chiharu Shiota. Zeitguised’s digital anamorphosis, the electronic universe of Caterina Barbieri and her synthesiser. The time in the fourth dimension, one beyond our experience and comprehension, as evoked by Li Shurui. The spatial and temporal references of the architecture enveloping the exhibition and which vanish in the room of Krijn de Koning but also the ephemeral performative space by Alex Schweder that envelops the viewer into a soft hug of intimacy and entrapment.
“Nine Journeys Through Time” is an exhibition organized by Yuz Museum together with Alcantara, and evolves from the eponymous show previously presented in the Apartment of the Prince, Royal Palace in Milan, conceived and co-curated by Davide Quadrio and Massimo Torrigiani in 2018.
“Nine Journeys Through Time” offers an exceptional combination of talents, 9 artistic approaches are brought together, expressing their visions through 9 projects in various artistic languages. From the transfiguration of painting into fashion, from digital design to music, they all draw inspiration from the specifics of a unique medium: Alcantara, analyzing all its various declinations and potential, exploring its invention and production processes, working with technicians and experts, be it along independent paths or through innovative collaboration projects.
The 9 artists are Aaajiao, Andrea Anastasio, Caterina Barbieri, Krijn de Koning, Li Shurui, Alex Schweder, Chiharu Shiota, Iris van Herpen, and Zeitguised.
Each of them has come up with a site-specific work, initially dialoguing with the Royal Palace in Milan, itself a setting charged with great creative energy: a launch pad for journeys ranging from anomalous science laboratories, anacondas, mutations, sinusoids, oracular apparitions, twisting from the natural to the artificial and back again, psychedelic corridors and quirky metronomes. All this energy is mutated and transformed in the main exhibition hall of Yuz Museum in Shanghai.
