bio

Chen Wei started off as an experimental musician and later on turned to photography. His photographs recall a rehearsal stage: combining different elements of different scenes and rearranging them together, the appearance of certain objects are intentional as to create a specific scene. Chen Wei tries to use this overlap between the idea of the rehearsal and the reality of the image, showing the diverse realities and contradictions that exist.

Unlike many of the first generation of Chinese contemporary photographers whose photographs are technically documentation of performances and installations, Chen Wei and his contemporaries are giving the voice back to the medium and forging their idiosyncratic languages that are informed and inspired by western masters like Jeff Wall, Cindy Sherman, Gregory Crewdson, etc.

With cinematic settings, Chen Wei’s photos reveal dreamscapes that capture impossible movement in everyday life and residues of histories. Modern and contemporary literatures have served as his reference and inspiration.

简介

陈维早期从事实验音乐,后转而进入影像的创作。他的影像创作如同舞台排演般展开,常常将不同场景的事物重新整理组合在一起,照片中物体的拜访是有意为之并制造出特定的场景。陈维试图是用这些重叠于排演与现实之间的形象,呈现出同时存在的多样现实与矛盾。
