Artist Qiu Zhijie (邱志杰; b. 1969, Fujian
Province, China) draws from major political and historical narratives to
produce large-scale ink-based maps. From Confucianism to Enlightenment, Qiu
Zhijie charts new paths, centers, nodes and relationships, scrutinizing the
mutable boundaries that outline histories of world thought. The concepts on
which Qiu Zhijie bases the series of mappings of the contemporary world are
summarized in the following maps: Map of
21st century; Map of Utopia; Map of Total Art; Map of Chinese History; Map of
Nanjing Yangzi River
and Map of
Spirit Renew
. These maps also inform the concept of the 9th
Shanghai Biennale, with ‘Reactivation’ as its central theme, opening on the
October 1st
