Cao Zhiyi

Singapore, 2014

210 x 290 mm
Edition of 30

About the Artist
Cao Zhiyi graduated from Hwachong Junior College last year. She is now taking a year out before going back to studying art. Zhiyi creates artworks based on the belief that the ambiguity of context can drive people deeper into themselves and arouse their subconscious. “I am urging viewers to abandon the rationality the world espouses and make sense of things in unorthodox ways.”

THEBOOKSHOW is a Singapore-based initiative that began in 2014. It aims to act as a platform for aspiring artists to showcase books conceived out of passion. Through the use of the book, a basic and familiar medium, THEBOOKSHOW advances towards being a mediator between the art world and the general public. Our hope is to bring a renewed perspective upon our eyes. We believe very much in challenging the medium - moving away from the conventional form that the book takes. In time, we hope to build a substantial database advocating that the book form is an art in and of itself.
