Zhou Tao

周滔

Born in 1976 in Changsha, Hunan Province, Zhou Tao studied at the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts and received a bachelor of fine arts in oil painting in 2001 and a master of fine arts in mixed-media studies in 2006. Currently lives in Guangzhou. Zhou Tao finds visual and narrative materials for his arresting film works in the places and communities he encounters, and the narration of the film is often developed from the accumulation of the encountered moments. There is no single entry to the practice of Zhou Tao, through often subtle and humorous interactions with people, things, actions, locations and situations, Zhou’s videos invite us to experience the multiple trajectories of reality—what he once called the “folding scenario” or the “zone with folds.” Although all of his footage captures actual scenes, the poetics of Zhou’s visual narratives dissolve the division between fact and fiction. For him, the use of moving image is not a deliberate choice of artistic language or medium, instead the operation of the camera is a way of being that blends itself with everyday life. Zhou Tao has participated in international exhibitions and bienniales, including: Viva Arte Viva, 57th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, Venice, 2017; Sharjah Biennial 13, Sharjah, 2017; Tales of Our Time, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, 2016; APT8, Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art, Brisbane, 2015; “Social Factory” - 10th Shanghai Biennale, Shanghai, 2014; The 5th Auckland Triennial: If you were to live here……, Auckland, 2013, etc. He received the awards including “FUGAS Feature Film Section - Jury Award”, DocumentaMadrid in 2018, the 1st Prize of the Jury of the Ministry, 61st Oberhausen Internation Short Film Festival in 2015 and the 1st Han Nefkens Foundation BACC Award for Contemporary Art in Asia in 2013.

周滔1976年出生于湖南长沙,于2001年获得广州美术学院油画专业学士学位,2006年获得混合媒介专业硕士学位。 周滔往往从他所遭遇的场所和人群中展开影像的叙事,对于个体与空间关系的探索一直是他创作的线索之一。尽管近年来周滔常常从全球不同城市的地理文化情境中汲取灵感,他所生活和居住的广东周边也从未远离他创作的视线。他善于从这些看似迥异的场景中寻觅共通和互动,所谓的影像方法,对周滔来说,无异于是身体的一部分,是皮肤与现实接触的一层触介,由此,周滔不构思营造剧本,从而让叙述脱离任何的理性框架和生产逻辑。周滔诗学般的影像叙述跨越了真实与虚构的界限,藉此从现实之重中突围而出,成为“贴近地面的飞行”。 周滔近年参加的一系列国际展览包括: “艺术万岁”,第57届威尼斯双年展,威尼斯,2017;“第13届沙迦双年展”,沙迦,2017;“故事新编”,所罗门·R·古根海姆美术馆,纽约,2016; “第八届亚太平洋当代艺术三年展”,布里斯班,2014;“社会工厂”,第十届上海双年展,上海,2014;“第五届奥克兰三年展:假如你将生活在这里”,奥克兰,2013等。 周滔的获奖包括:“FUGAS Feature Film Section - 评审团奖”,DocumentaMadrid,马德里,2018;第61届奥伯豪森国际短片电影节,评委会大奖首奖,2015; 首届汉涅夫金斯基金会曼谷艺术及文化中心,当代亚洲艺术奖,2013。
