Jiang Pengyi Dark Addiction/The Suspended Moment/Intimacyat ShanghART H-Space, Shanghai
28 June 2014 - 31 July 2014
We are so honored to present Jiang Pengyi’s first exhibition in ShanghART, which opens in H-Space from June 28th to Jul 31st, 2014.
This exhibition presents three series Jiang Pengyi created in the past two years, including The Dark Addiction, Intimacy, and The Suspended Moment. They are the outcomes of continuous experiment and exploration that span from the field of materials such as light, camera, photographic film, firefly, nature and many others to the field of spirit such as life, narration, relationship, time, space and many others. These three series not only represent the perfect combination of technology and aesthetics in the use of photography, but also the inseparability of poetics and thought when it comes to artistic creation. What else could photography be? What else could image be? How to make light, time and life become visible? It is such artist’s inquiries to the nature and basis of photography and art that initiated these creations. In this sense, the curator, Gu Zheng, regards Jiang Pengyi as the explorer of light, and describes his works as a story or an allegory about light, a writing of light that were given out by tiny objects, and a light-based discussion about the significance of life.
