*The hormone oxytocin has been shown to be associated with the ability to maintain healthy interpersonal relationships and healthy psychological boundaries with other people. Bonding with a partner could have unexpected rewards—in your brain, thus in your life.

Yellow Matters ‘SELF Code’ – Wu Zhi


Wu Zhi

Opening :
19:00 – 23:00 FRI. 17.03.2017

17.03 -28.03.2017

Wu Zhi ( Sichuan, CN / Berlin) pushes the conceptual boundaries of traditional portrait painting and drawing. Her artistic work, both classically rendered and theatrically composed, examines the complexities of the migrating experience as an Asian woman.
The twisted mortality revealed in the tension between social and psychological transformations endured by her subjects.
Wu Zhi will show her self- portraits of the last 15 years since she immigrated to Europe.

The long-term curatorial project ‘Yellow Matters’ by SOMA Art Gallery Berlin is supported by Senatsverwaltung für Kultur und Europa Berlin (Senate Department for Culture and Europe Berlin).
