XING Danwen

A romantic tale of the city

A romantic tale of the city

Guangzhou Photo Biennial 2005

18 Jan – 28 Feb 2005
Xing Danwen is an active Chinese artist on the international scene. Her "Fictionalized history of the city" combines self-portraits and still lives to imagine a town history located in the process of urbanization. Photographing the architecture models at the points of sale, Xing Danwen then stages herself in all the situations of a city woman, before assembling the images by digital process. Work thus completed shows loneliness, the isolation and the alienation of the individual in modern life. … more

The influence of the Western culture on contemporary China, the problems encountered by the country in the process of development are at the heart of the concerns of Wang Qingsong. With theatrical photographic settings, the author reinforces, increases, caricatures, often with irony, the problems he wants us to become aware of. He frequently places himself in the image to invite the viewer to follow his glance.

His work wants to be a metaphor of the living and working conditions in the city of … more

Very active artist, so much in China than abroad, Weng Fen is teaching at the University of Hainan. "On the wall" presents a series of young girls in sailor suit, leaning or sitting on a wall, contemplating the high rises drawn up in the distance, against blue sky,on the other side of the wall. The artist uses this wall to present two aspects of reality: the city that one sees in the distance is a new city, developed, with potentiality, a kind of metaphor, an ideal to which the young girls aspir… more

During nine years, across several European countries (East and West) and America, the photojournalist, Jane Evelyn Atwood encountered and photographed women in jail, inprisonned either for minor infractions (theft or drugs) or for major offences (murder or child abuse).This long involvement, which moving and passionate photographs describe scenes far beyond our imagination, tells the changing story of a population of jailed women.

Today, the light exceeds its original function of lighting; mastered, carved, the light surprises,

The exhibition, which scenography is by itself a light installation, shows the urban landscape new night identity and the modernity of its scenography.

Dityvon roams the streets with jazz tunes which always accompany him in his head, those of Monk and Coltrane whose this humanistic likes the swing and "the silence suspended between two notes". He does not really know that this is what he seeks to photograph, but he feels it. And contrary to others, he accumulates the images of the intervals, significant but not very spectacular instants. He wants "to show what is in between, which is not seen and which resembles the music of the words and the r… more

In the horizon of a street that disappear, the inprints left on a graffity wall or the tight face of a motionless pedestrian, Jean-Pierre Favreau questions the city. Multiple, various, it remains, singular here.

No one needs to know where we are, in New York, Havana, Rome or Tokyo; we are traveller of the edges, of the fringes, at the borders between light and dark.

The thin thread which connects each city, it is this moment of madness perceived in an attitude, this expression of abandonment … more

Guangzhou Photo Biennial 2005

18 Jan – 28 Feb 2005
These women and these men that we call the "Without Land" ("Sem Terra") militate for an equitable land reform for all. They strongly defend an ideology strongly tainted by Marxism-Leninism and Christianity which would make it possible for each one to cultivate a plot of land taken off the immense properties that a handful of powerful men hold and refuse to yield to the poorest. Today, the majority of them live without any income, inside sordid huts covered with plastic, without water nor electri… more

In housing estates where his friends live, in small towns where he stops to have a warm lunch while on a trip, in villages, in the countryside that flanks the road to his destination. Kollars topics are simply everywhere that people live their everyday, ordinary lives. These topics emerge both incidentally and in… more

The sky as a backdrop in July 1997 in Hong Kong was heavy. It poured daily and peoples_ hearts were heavy and depressed. China was about to take Hong Kong back after over 100 years of British colonization. Lau Pokchi wanted to take his family’s portraits for this occasion but they had all left for America. Some had come back because America was not for everyone. This disjointed-family situation became a common phenomenon in Hong Kong with a population of 6.5 million. Housing was dense, tiny an… more

His photographic representations, guided by intuition and inspired by colour, are carried out with a 4 X 5 inches camera.

In Central America, one calls them maras. These groups of young people, built on the model of the gangs of Los Angeles, become frightening, sow terror in El Salvador. This is a study of a violent phenomenon imported from the United States. The gangs, las maras, made up of young people, covered in tattoo and dedicated to the traffic of weapons and drug, colonize little by little all of Central America. An Indirect effect of globalisation, it is in Los Angeles that the young latinos immigrants sta… more

As in Europe where they followed the cathedrals, the majority of the buildings, in the vast megapoles of China, are devoted today to the worship of Consumption.

"Go to London, see the girls and learn English" said Capa as a welcome to Magnum finding him too shy. Marc Riboud reaches Leeds in 1954, he does not meet the girls and does not learn English. The greyness and the sadness of this industrial town which seemed stuck in the 19th century reminded him of Lyon where he was born. He returns to London, gives his films to a picture-editor which, before even greeting him, declares to him: "Capa is dead". Under shock, Riboud returns to Paris. And there he f… more

In this provocative body of photographic work, Edward West uses the metaphorical power of shadow to foreground the shifting visibility of South Africa's black population post apartheid.In focusing on the private moments of these newly empowered people within their own commun… more

In order to offer the public, a so-called "knowledge" of nature, one tears off animals from their natural environment.
