任瀚(1984,天津)是一位艺术家,工作于北京和巴黎。

在天津美术学院油画系毕业之后,他于2008至2011年间就读于法国维拉阿尔松国立高等艺术学院艺术系并获得艺术硕士学位。

任瀚的作品包括素描、装置和场域特定作品,他对媒介定义上的界限保持怀疑,并用不同类型的实践对此发问。他使用简单直接的材料(如铅笔、复写纸、建筑材料)进行创作,对网络图像和艺术品进行挪用,避免在信息泛滥时代生产新的图像,重新勘探已有的生活和艺术体验。任瀚作品(镜子、灾难、温柔的撞击等)中所表现的双重性不仅标志着左与右之间、自我与他者之间永远共存的二元对立,也标志着心灵与物质、心灵与身体以及人与自然之间的哲学性关联。

他曾在世界各地参与展览,包括巴黎104艺术中心、莫斯科现代艺术博物馆、柏林中国文化中心、尼斯亚洲艺术博物馆、北京今日美术馆、泰康空间等。并在巴黎Less Is More Projects、北京C-空间、LAB47和七木空间举办个展。同时他也是再生空间计划(www.s-r-p.org)的联合创始人。

Ren Han is an artist based in Beijing and Paris.

Born 1984 in Tianjin (CN), after studying painting in Tianjin Academy of Fine Art, he joins the art department of École Nationale Supérieure d’Art de la Villa Arson in Nice (FR) from 2008 to 2011 and obtains the DNSEP.

Ren Han’s works include drawings, installations and site-specific works, however, he always feel doubt about the existence of fixed boundaries in the definition of medium and bring it into question in works of varying types. The materials he employed are simple and easily available, such as pencil, carbon paper and building stuff, and he always deploys graphic resources and established works from the internet, intending to re-examine the existing experience of our life and art practice instead of manufacturing new images in information chaos characterizing our time. The duality that Ren Han’s works (Mirror, Disaster, Soft Impact ect.) present, does not only denote the co-eternal binary oppositions of left and right, or self and other, but also the philosophical relationships of mind and matter, mind and body, as well as man and nature.

He has participated in exhibitions worldwide, including the Centquatre in Paris, the Moscow Museum of Modern Art, the China Cultural Center in Berlin, the Musée des Arts Asiatiques in Nice, the Today Art Museum, Taikang Space in Beijing, etc. His had solo exhibitions at Less Is More Projects in Paris, at C-Space, LAB47 and Qimu Space in Beijing. He is also the co-founder of the Space Regeneration Projects (www.s-r-p.org).
