As Entertaining As Possible LIANZHOU FOTO Chongqing Tour begins
Duan Yuting, art director of As Entertaining As Possible LIANZHOU FOTO acted a guide to visiting guests and media.
CHONGQING(CQNEWS)--Curated by Francois Cheval, Duan Yuting and Olga Sviblova, the exhibition is in three parts: Theme Exhibition, Special Exhibition of Punctum Photos and Russian Photography Masters Special Exhibition. The exhibition tries to explore the mysterious relationship between the current consumption age and material desire. At the exhibition scene, we can see such consumption scenes we are quite familiar with as real estate, shopping malls, supermarkets, parties and amusement parks, with figures similar to ourselves.
As Francois Cheval, chief curator of the exhibition, said in the introduction of the exhibition, “Consumption makes us different from others, while possessing materials not only embodies the social status of a person, but also shows his identity. Saving, labor, accumulating wealth and all related virtues are cast aside by the consumption economy. Meeting the needs is just the first step, and next people need to get the commodities and services that demonstrate themselves as a way of communication – a unique vocabulary of the modern society. People look into themselves through the commodities consumed by themselves and into others through the commodities they consume.”
Do you want to take a look at the snapshots of those extremely similar to us in the familiar scenes in the consumption age? The exhibition at Testbed 2, No. 1, Eling Zhengjie (Main Street), Yuzhong District is waiting for you.
