Zhang Ning: Stone Youth

1 - 25 August 2008

In his work "Taking Photos" series, the intentionally tailoring youth images in the negative of the picture are pressed back into the past by the time which reverses the white and black. You can feel the individual's despair of tranquility from the "Sleepless Man in White Series", during which the space becomes large ruthlessly in the white and lonely timespace, and our helpless and reduced soul is lonely and deserted. In the "Flowering Peaches Series", apparently, there is kind of ecstasy, an ecstasy that is limited and genius like the gold.


The artists live in the real life, but they actually have another world, which make us have a sense of living when we are immersed in the sensory paralysis of the routine life.
