Images

With her second solo exhibition in the region, Jinchi will exhibit a selection of new works based on the ritual of faith. This series of drawings pursues a specific artistic question: to imagine a form for prayer. The drawings are maps of faith, propelled by questions on the place of religious ritual in a secular age. 

Like the patterns and habits of everyday life, their circular motifs are the result of forms repeated over time. The drawings are in fact rubbings, made by scratching charcoal on thin paper so that it captures an imprint of the textured surface placed beneath it.
