Feng Yan Contemporary Photography

Exhibition Catalogue of Three Shadows + 3 gallery

Photography is the most direct and imaginative carrier to suggest memories. In one of Feng Yan's series of works about the public articles during the period of socialist construction called "The Monuments", with a method of austere realism, photography as a means has expressed a cross-reference topic of public history and personal memories. These works include museum black leather stool, Mao style sofa,fan, shelf, clothes rack, file cabinets etc. Feng Yan deliberately severed the associations of these items with the surroundings, placed in a single seemingly careless and casual background, and photographed them as portraits from front, profile and back angles.
