Stella Zhong “comet without a tail” at Chapter NY, New York
Chapter NY is pleased to present “comet without a tail,” Stella Zhong’s first solo exhibition at the gallery, featuring a large-scale sculptural installation.
In“comet without a tail,” Zhong builds a metaphysical space, one that operates across imagined dimensions. A raised floor spans the exhibition space, reorienting the viewer’s experience of the gallery. Beneath the floor, Zhong embeds a constellation of non-representational, idiosyncratic sculptures that carry out motions of slicing, reorganizing, and reconfiguring—simulating the perpetual splitting and merging at the particle level. Their forms are only partially visible through rounded slits in the floor’s surface, rejecting conventional modes of viewership and encouraging a tactile imagination.
