Intelligentsia Gallery is pleased to present ‘The Yellow Ones are Mine’, a group exhibition with works by Elsie Yi Shen (b. 1974, Jiaxing, China) , Engel Leonardo (b. 1977 Bani, Dominican Republic), Sonia & Mark Whitesnow (b. 1986 Kirov, Russia), Jade Townsend (b. 1986 Wanganui, New Zealand), and Zhang Xuerui (b. 1979 Shanxi, China)
Borrowing its title from an eponymous piece by Elsie Yi Shen, ‘The Yellow Ones are Mine’ explores aesthetic strategies and conceptual bridges employed to transform and reclaim bodies, objects, mediums, thought-figures and processes. Through grasping gaze and alchemistic power, each of the works in the exhibition executes a conceptual transformation, from the extraction of commonplace objects and phrases, to the manipulation of images of the corporeal, from time-based painting of geometric colour fields, to performative selection of all the yellow balloons and painting the remaining ones as an act of conceptual appropriation.
Curated by Garcia Frankowski, the forty seventh international exhibition presents photography, artifacts, and painting to dissect the processes of accumulation, repetition, transformation and documentation inherent to the production and realization of everyday (or non-everyday) projects, as everything is transformed, reticulated and painted in order to declare ‘The Yellow Ones are Mine’.
