Photobook: Midnight Tweedle, Zhang Lijie


Midnight Tweedle, by Beijing-based photographer Zhang Lijie will be exhibited at the IPA PHOTOBOOKS SHOW Travelling Edition 2014.

Through sequences of fragmental scenes, Midnight Tweedle explores the diversity of Chinese collective memory from a personal perspective. Either narrative or random, conscious or unconscious, those images seem potentially connected, coincidentally, which is the way that how memory works.

Employing various medium forms, from documentary photography, collage, poster to staged imagery, Midnight Tweedle aim to introspect human kind, especially the Chinese, and symbolize the dilemmas within the context of cultural and political history of China.

《半夜琵(luàn)琶(tán)》是张立洁的最新实验作品,采取了艺术手工书的方式,是艺术家对集体记忆、文化身份的一次视觉实验。

艺术家在不同材质和视觉素材中穿梭反复,照片、海报、日记、实物……纪实的、观念的、摆拍的,拼贴、摄影、图画……书中一连串片段似的场景和一些看似无关的碎片都成为某种记忆材料。

图像之间的叠加、互文性让全然无关的视觉信息诞生了新的意义,观者自身的潜意识和文化积累与之发生碰撞,形成语义开放的想像空间。
