Gang Chen: Invasive Imagery 

February 24 - April 10, 2011

Crossing Art is pleased to present Gang Chen: Invasive Intimacy, the New York solo debut of Beijing based artist Gang Chen curated by Catherine Lee. Invasive Intimacy is an exhibition of paintings inspired by the x-ray images of luggage taken when it passes through airport security. Chen’s work explores the relationships between the object and its owner through a forced transparency of self, an invasive intimacy. Chen aims to demonstrate the side of mankind that is unable to express a combination of feelings such as distress mixed with ecstasy and aesthetic beauty with dysfunction.
