Dans son travail, Jiang Zhi explore les conditions de la conscience moderne. Surtout connu pour ses photographies, Jiang utilise néanmoins de nombreux supports, aucun ne suffisant à lui seul à exprimer toute sa créativité. Ses images manipulées combinent la réalité et l’imagerie numérique hi-tech, créant des oeuvres qui représentent et revisitent le présent et la conception mentale que nous en avons. La photo de la tristement célèbre maison de Chongqing, appelée la Maison des Clous, est représentative du travail de Jiang : un rayon de néon apparemment extraterrestre inonde la maison que les propriétaires refusent de quitter malgré la démolition de leur quartier.

L’artiste chinois Jiang Zhi est né en 1971 à Yuanjiang dans la province du Hunan (Chine). Il est diplômé de l’Académie Centrale des Beaux-Arts en 1995. Il vit et travaille à Pékin.
