From November 17 to December 22, 2012, the gallery will exhibit the work of five current photographers: Qiu Minye, Wang Tong, Chen Xiaowei, Xu Zhe and Feng Fangyu.
They are part of an emerging generation of young Chinese photographers because today’s China is modern and dynamic and through the work of these photographers, contemporary China is explored. The desire to look at contemporary society as well as reflect on Chinese history and traditions is surveyed in each artists work while being guided each time by different perspectives. They question contemporary society as well as the history of their country.
Memory, patriotism, the influence of globalization and the exploration of marginality are new problems that perpetually arise in their work. Between broken dreams and dreams come true, these photographers combine wonders to reality with a sense of humour.
Magic China discovers the richness of the new photographic generation. For the first time in France, we explore the ability of photographers to reinvent China through photograph, showing us the culture of China today.
