Program 17:30 – 19:00 

  • Welcome to the Connect Club event series by The Copenhagen Post publisher Jesper Skeel and editor Lena Hunter 
  • Introduction to the gallery and exhibition by the curator Cila Brosius 
  • Introduction to the artworks and creative process by the artist Zheng Wen 

About the gallery:
Bien Contemporary (est. 2021) strives to reinforce the international art scene in Denmark by establishing a platform for artists of all nationalities and various disciplines, promoting art as inherently connected to its context rather than the artist’s nationality.

Bien Contemporary is also committed to democratizing artistic expression by organizing art workshops, networking events, concerts, and other activities, accessible to the broad public. The space supports the idea that artistic expression is a shared social practice that transcends professions, specific groups or segments within society. 


About the artist:
Zheng Wen 郑文 (b. 1963, Beijing) is a photographer, whose interest in the medium began during his college years at Peking University. Here, he was awarded  a prize in photography, and organized his own window exhibition – the first of its kind on campus – in 1988.

His undergraduate studies in international politics, postgraduate degree in cultural communication, and his specialization in cultural exchange throughout his career, deeply influenced the approach he took in his ongoing photography work.

(Re)covered is a continuation of the exhibition Covered and Recovered Streets 街裱, which was shown at Beijing’s Inter Art Center / Inter Gallery 映艺术中心/映画廊 in 2014. The enriched form of this exhibition in Copenhagen marks 10 years of its artistic development.

About the curator:
Cila Brosius (b. 1990, New York) is a German-American curator based in Copenhagen. She holds a master’s degree from New York University with a background in Chinese Studies, Anthropology, and Visual Arts Administration. For the past ten years, she has worked in a variety of contemporary arts organizations as a curator, content creator, and art business advisor.

She is particularly interested in enhancing the accessibility of the art world through cross-generational and cross-cultural dialogue.
