Before I met Zhou, I got to know him through his work .
I came across Zhou's work in an art exhibition, It was mysterious, strange and absurd， yet displaying unique aesthetics and texture. It made me wonder what a cool person the artist would be. Just like I expected, blue knit hat, gigantic earrings, tattoos, oddly shaped black backpack, rainbow colored socks. When he walked towards me， I felt like a warrior from a futuristic tribe is approaching.
Later we communicated more and had few more collaboration， it turns out, beside his unique character, he is actually a person that is rather down-to-earth. Zhou always thinks for others，so he has a lot of friends. during this project， we had many discussion, I could always feel the honesty and sincerity when we talk. I have visited his museum like home atelier many times， the place amuses me every time, because every time I go, I could discover something new and fresh. Zhou binds his life and creative work together, inside his atelier，I could hardly separate home furnishing from art creations，is it a chair or is it an installation, or is it a reconstruction of a common tool? When you are inside his world, maybe definition is not what's important here, you would wonder what is he trying to express , what is he going to be doing?
As we are working on the project of "R3PM3 - Exhibition of Zhou's Production", showcasing the idea of rebuilding of ordinary and old objects. You begin to realize that it is difficult to define the boundaries of objects, product and art. What kind of art project is this and what will the exhibition scene be like？more
