About

Zhou Junsheng (b. 1989, CN) takes photographs. He sees photography as a way not limited to photographic medium but also embracing forms such as installation and performance. The Chinese word for photography zhaoxiang 照相 combines the word zhao, to illuminate, to reflect, to mirror, to understand and xiang, appearance, form, phase and mutual. Their combined semantic space corresponds closely to what Junsheng Zhou does. He attempts to place a surface between the object and himself, a surface in which their appearances are joinly reflected (相照). Junsheng’s works generally concern ideas of temporality and language, and also probe themes such as the use of uselessness and representation of representation.

Junsheng was born and grew up in Beijing, moved to Prague where he studied at the Film and TV School of the Academy of Performing Arts in 2011. Currently is participating at Jan van Eyck, Maasticht, the Netherlands.
