HU Weiyi 胡為一

Hu Weiyi is a young new media artist currently living and working in Shanghai. After graduating from the China Academy of Art in 2013, he continued his studies as a Master’s student in at the School of Intermedia Art under the tutelage of Zhang Peili. Perhaps due to his youth, his work is permeated with explorations of the unknown, grappling with life’s sorrows, and curiosity about natural and bodily injury, such as the Low Landscape series or 14mins. He recently transitioned from a stage of grammatical imitation to more of a self-reflective grammatical mould. As a rising star of new media art, he has gradually evolved into a more introspective mode of working. Hu Weiyi has managed to master an ever-changing motif, that is, he has gone from internal and intimate contemplation to a more direct expression of his understanding of this world. Hu Weiyi explores the relationship between randomness and nature, reverses it via subjective expression while presupposing the audience’s trajectory. Like many seasoned artists, he has a mastery of space, the conceptual, and the external extension of information. His recent exhibitions include: “Flirt”, a solo exhibition at M50 Art Space in Shanghai in 2014, Shanghai 21st Century Minsheng Art Museum’s inaugural exhibition “COSMOS” also in 2014, The 2nd “CAFAM Future” Exhibition and the “No Express”
exhibition at the UCCA Pavilion in 2015.

胡為一是一位現工作和生活於上海的年輕新媒體藝術家,在2013年畢業於中國美術學院後,他繼續在中國美術學院跨媒體藝術學院攻讀碩士,師承導師張培力。可能因為年輕,他的工作充滿對未知的探索,與生命中那些憂傷角力,對自然和身體傷害的好奇,再表現在作品中,如他的《低級景觀》系列或《14mins》。他正在從一種語法的模仿階段,走向自我語法的塑造,從一個新媒體藝術新星,逐漸轉型為更加自我內省的工作狀態,胡為一很好的把握了這一轉變的主體,也就是從內在的思考和內心,更直接的表達出對這個世界的理解。胡為一將隨機性和自然生成的關係,扭轉為主觀表達,並預設了觀眾的軌跡。如同很多成熟藝術家,很好的把握了空間、概念和對外延伸的信息。他近期的展覽包括2014年於上海M50 Art Space舉辦個展”Flirt”,同年參加上海二十一世紀民生美術館開館展“多重宇宙”,2015年參加第二屆CAFAM未來展和同年在尤倫斯當代藝術中心悅廊舉辦個展“兩點之間沒有直線”。
