NADINE STIJNS: PHOTO SCREENING + PRESENTATION OF WORKS IN PROGRESS: Artist-in-Residence Talk

29 May 2010

Dutch artist Nadine Stijns will showed the work she has made during her three month residency at the Three Shadows Photography Art Centre.


While in China, Stijns became fascinated with the way the natural and the artificial mix in Chinese society from the standpoint of a Western eye. She photographed the newly created and Western inspired idyllic surroundings of luxury apartment blocks in Chaoyang District, the striking duality of twins in a country that still enforces the One Child Policy, and the eerie consumerism of covered stalls in Wangjing's mega-shopping malls after closing time. In each of these series, she examines the blurred demarcation line between the public and the private as well as the addition of some Western ideals that appear to have become prevalent in the construction of Chinese society.

Nadine's work focuses on the small ordinary moments and objects that are part of daily life.
