  • About the book

Catalogue raisonné. 1977-1996 (Vol.1), 1997-2000 (Vol. 2).

Chen Zhen (Shanghai, 1955 - Paris, 2000) has been a privileged witness of the economic-cultural globalization and in particular of the gap between China and the Western world. A stranger in his own country and a foreigner in France, where he moved in 1986, Chen Zhen has sought his own way by remaining on the margins of two systems. In the context of this "double exile," He has found himself particularly ready for cultural assimilation, which has become the foundational element of his creative inspiration. Chen Zhen's works question the world, humanity and its relationship with the environment in order to establish a dialogue and foster a transcultural mindset - a new language, a new way of life that takes into account a spiritual and technological, material and immaterial dimension.

This catalogue raisonné offers new possibilities to analyze and compare Chen Zhen's entire oeuvre. Since 2008, a team of researchers has undertaken a meticulous and systematic study of his archives in collaboration with collectors, galleries, museums, public and private institutions, exhibition curators and friends of the artist. 

The catalogue raisonné of Chen Zhen presents the complete inventory of the artist's authentic works, catalogued in chronological order in two volumes: the first covers the years 1977-1996, the second runs from 1997 to 2000. The splendid essay by Isabelle Renard and Xu Min is one of the main contributions to the catalogue, placing Chen Zhen's works in their historical context and highlighting the key periods in the artist's creative journey.
