Photography is the image reproduction of optics. It records and represents the reality in the eyes of photographers, and also freezes the chosen time and space. The choice always provides the possibility of constructing reality in a conceptual level. This exhibition collects the works of ten Beijing contemporary photo-artists, in which ‘reality’ is personally interpreted through the different cutting point of body, society, culture as well as history.
Apart from the exhibition in the Hong Kong Arts Centre, there are small-scale artworks, videos, photographs and catalogues recording contemporary art activities in China exhibited in Para Site.
More materials are available to view on site at Para Site.
The Archive Project is financially supported by the Project Grant of the Hong Kong Arts Development Council.
