Wang Jiazeng has been rooted in the old industrial base of Northeast China since he was a child, and the urban imprint of his youth is deeply embedded in his consciousness, which has become an inexhaustible driving power for his creation. In his more than 30 years of artistic career, Wang Jiazeng’s creative language has become more and more refined, growing from a printmaker to an abstract artist, and from an abstract artist to an installation artist. In recent years, the artist has focused on the study of “folds”, from “folds of space” to “folds of objects”, in addition to focus on the change of industrialized cities, he has more philosophical reflection. Wang Jiazeng mainly uses rusted iron, steel, aluminum and other metals to condense the distant and heavy history in the remnant fragments, and return to the trauma that is difficult to name. “Punctum” is just a glimpse into this trauma, and the desolation of bodies and minds left over from China’s northern industrial age.
