Everyday Scenery and Props
by Gallery Exit
Location: Gallery EXIT
Artist(s): CHEN Wei
Date: 30 Oct - 5 Dec 2009

Gallery EXIT is pleased to announce Everyday scenery and props, the first solo exhibition of CHEN Wei with the gallery.

Chen’s cinematic touch and lush colors animate the ambience of the daily objects he chooses to photograph. On close viewing, it is discovered that everything, even the dirt on the floor, is a deliberate construction to suggest a time and place that no longer is. A few props serve as signifiers to a meaning that is waiting to be made. Memory and reality influence each other but the viewer is left in suspense until he makes up his mind and return to the everyday, which is always so familiar and foreign at the same time.

Over the past six years, CHEN Wei (b.1980) has established himself as a studious conceptual photographer working in Hangzhou and currently in Beijing. His work has been exhibited at the 3rd Guangzhou Photo Biennial, Today Art Museum (Beijing), MoCA Shanghai, Poland and USA.

The artist will be present at the opening reception.
