This partner project shows a succession of 60 copies of the EU map (status in 2014). It starts with a copy after an official map, done in acrylic on paper, after which the partners took turns at copying the map, working only after the previous version done by the other. Over the course of two months, the EU was gradually (accidentally, subconsciously) altered in the repetitive daily routine, until the political order in the map dissolved and became something else – just like the map is an abstraction of the world, the abstraction of the map is a painting.

ARTIST'S BOOKSPAINTINGWORKS ON PAPER

2010

Marco Polo – A Travel Guide

2010, Ce Jian, Andrew James Art, Shanghai, 2010, 52 p., softcover, 21 x 14 cm

Artist’s book and exhibition catalog for the solo show Marco Polo – A Travel Guide at Andrew James Art in Shanghai, realized during an artist residency at JIA Shanghai in 2010.

The Marco Polo travel guide series is especially popular among German tourists and has become a symbol of their curiosity about foreign places and cultures. For my Shanghai project, I took this guidebook as a manual and strictly followed each sightseeing recommendation like a good tourist, while learning about my own country of origin through foreign eyes.
The photos and materials collected along the way resulted in a large number of paintings, drawings and collages, part of which were used to create this new Marco Polo guidebook – a fragmentary and ironic recount of my personal “Shanghai experience”.
