Feng Li "White Nights in Wonderland"
Exhibiting Time: 2023.10.21 - 2024.2.25

White Nights in Wonderland invites visitors to experience the spectacle of contemporary society in all its surreal, subtle, and visceral detail as seen through the lens of Feng Li. Celebrated around the world from Paris to Tokyo, from Shanghai to his hometown of Chengdu, Feng Li cultivated a distinctive visual language that has gained him a richly-deserved international reputation in street photography and fashion. Against the backdrop of our modern cities, his colourful tableaux materialise enigmatic, fleeting instants, and capture quotidian absurdities in the bright light of a flash, blurring night and day. 

Curated by the international photography specialist Holly Roussell, the exhibition presents in different sections. It features nearly 200 images shot over the preceding twenty years, as well as recontextualising Feng Li’s most iconic works White Nights. White Nights in Wonderland draws attention to vital moments in the artist’s development and to convey the truths of life.

In a society of ubiquitous image-making, Feng Li’s work stands out for his unique capacity to relish subtle ironies and to convey the surreal truths of daily life. He revels in the spectacular aesthetic potential of colour and the most unassuming details.

About the Artist
Feng Li is an artist who is good at finding something special from the ordinary. He discovered the treacherous side of reality and presented ordinary life scenes in an unusual way. Wandering around the city, he instinctively observes those familiar people, things and scenes in an intuitive way, and directly illuminates those incredible moments with flash lights. These scenes cut by flash lights are finally transformed into something weird and unexpected that condenses in time. 
 

Edward Burtynsky "Abstraction and the Altered Landscape"
Exhibiting Time: 2023.10.21 - 2024.2.25
 
Abstraction and the Altered Landscape brings together Edward Burtynsky’s selected works from two distinct projects that share a commonality. During the 40-year evolution of the artistic practice, abstraction has increasingly become a central mode of expression for Burtynsky.
 
Edward Burtynsky considers the objective of the work as satisfying not only impulses for inquiry and discovery, but also for seeking transformation. While there may be photojournalistic overtones in this work, the deeper concern is a desire to create large, detailed, painterly images into which the viewer is drawn not only by their formal aesthetic appeal, but also by the underlying subject matter. What in a photograph might seem like pointillist calligraphy or gestural brushstrokes, turns out to be swaths of industrial overburden or the tailings of a mining operation. This collision of form and content is important; it becomes a gestalt, so that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, providing balance and access to both information and aesthetic realisations.

Fan Xi "Simulation Play"
Exhibiting Time::2023.10.21 - 2024.2.25
 
Simulation Play is artist Fan Xi's first solo exhibition in Shanghai, it features films, sculptures and installations. Simulation Play hosts an array of “new plant species” that Fan Xi has bred in a realm of supernatural vegetation. From her early series to recent works, the evolution and metamorphosis of artificially created plants is a reoccurring theme. Simulation Play renders the notion of how photography is an act of imitation by the superimposition effect of the man and machine. And yet it is not a simple “simulation” of reality but aiming to challenge the conventional method of creation and visualization of photographic, to redefine and to push the boundaries of the medium, and to question its existence and its relationship with the audience. Through her investigation and practice, the works evoke exploration into a wider approach on the interpretation of photography. It also an exploration
