Titled Under Heaven and Here on Earth, the collaboration pays homage to the artist’s oeuvre blending pop cultural references with the human psyche and emotions. This specially curated collaboration includes XU ZHEN®’s iconic Under Heaven series that recalls the playful and sweet nature of love. Living and working in Shanghai, XU ZHEN® is a multi-disciplinary artist whose practice covers photography, sculpture, painting, video, and performance.
Under Heaven and Here on Earth will feature three of his most iconic works : Under Heaven -2801PR0176; Eternity-Northern Qi painted Bodhisattva, River God Ilissos from West Pediment of Parthenon; and Double Nature. Through the processes of juxtaposition and coexistence, the three artworks depict harmony across artistic media, cultures, and historical ages. From these portrayals of unity, visitors may experience the different phases of love from its inception to the coming together of soulmates and their happily ever after, which completes every love story.
Living and working in Shanghai, XU ZHEN®️ (b. 1977) is a leading Chinese contemporary artist, curator and the founder of MadeIn Company. As a multi-disciplinary artist, his practice covers photography, sculpture, painting, video, and performance, embracing a myriad of influences. Inspired by spirituality, mythology, society, and sexuality, the artist invites viewers to question what they are seeing and reflect it back to their own personal histories. XU ZHEN®️ is fascinated by human behavior, a subject explored in his live performances and video artworks. In 2013, he founded XU ZHEN®️, the flagship art brand of his art corporation MadeIn Company, transforming himself into an entrepreneur and producing art in vast quantities for commercial retail. This best reflects his cheeky attitude toward the art world—his oeuvre questions the faith that has been misplaced amidst globalization in the digital era.

American artist Joel Shapiro’s large sculpture Untitled (1992) exhibits the signature sense of movement in Shapiro’s works, which, through the arrangement of simplified elements, are powerfully suggestive of active human forms that engage viewers’ physical and psychological relationships with space. Subverting a distinction between abstraction and representation, the artist reconsiders the modern figurative tradition, creating abstract geometric sculpture that appears to reach, balance, and dance. His work as a whole can be seen as an ongoing succession of movements in which each individual work represents one significant action.
