Alexandre Zhu’s work spans from sculpture to photography, but he predominately creates charcoal drawings. His hyper-realistic drawings are partly based on a perceptive disorder. The forms revealed in his drawings are urban, architectural, raw, abstract and ambiguous, provoking the viewer to identify their meaning. Zhu questions the continuous transformation of our environment and its standardization. He is interested in objects and landscapes common to all modern civilization, such as architectural residues that he perceives as universal symbols. By modifying their appearance and removing them from all reference points, he seeks to make us forget the initial origin of these innocuous structures and thus wants us to question our relationship to constructions, which are as sudden as their destructions.
