倪军在猎豹的身上找到了一种可能，并反复出现在他的新作中。在这里，“猎豹”不仅是画面母题和意象，也是艺术家的自我指涉，而无论从哪个角度讲，它所隐喻的都是如何通过一种野蛮美学冲决现实封闭的网络，获得一种新的自由。PIFO Gallery is pleased to present Ni Jun's solo exhibition Back in the Jungle. It is the second one-man show of Ni Jun at PIFO Gallery, showing the artist's paintings from the past two years. This exhibition is curated by Lu Mingjun, curator and researcher of art philosophy at Fudan University.
This exhibition serves as a "fracture": although the paintings are characterized by his long-established artistic language, especially the technique of brushstroke and saturation of the color, it is manifestly evident that he is no longer extremely cautious or remarkably restrained; instead, he experiments with a brutal aesthetics and an unscrupulous manner of making paintings. This is because he is mindful that it is utterly disgraceful to pursue elegance and leisure. Ni Jun explored a possibility in the cheetah's body, which has appeared time after time in his new works. In this context, a cheetah doesn't only serve as the motif and the image of the picture, it also functions as the artist's self-referentiality. From all points of view, it is a metaphor for the ways in which the closed matrix of realities can be overcome through barbaric aesthetics to achieve a new kind of freedom.
倪军，1963 年生于天津，1991 年获美国新泽西罗格斯大学梅森·格罗斯艺术学院硕士学位，并定居纽约多年。现工作、生活于北京。

About the Gallery
PIFO Gallery concentrates on the participation of the course of Chinese contemporary art and the exploration of post-war European master artists and seeking for all possibilities of art power in the dialogue and collision between the two aspects. As a major gallery in China specialized in the study and promotion of abstract art, and also the main institution to continuously explore the various possibilities of figurative art at present, PIFO is convinced that the experience of art emerges from the new world created by one revolution after another; The artist's work is the third eye to explore the world. For collectors, PIFO provides expertise and encourages them to explore their own unique perspective because only the combination of the two can make a great collection. We hope to see a growing number of collectors to take on the roles of a connoisseur, with a more in-depth understanding of Asian and Western contemporary art, and appreciate the artists discovered, reshaped and firmly believed in by the gallery.
