Chi Peng, Miao Xiaochun, Rong Rong & Inri, Shao Yinong & Muchen

: November 23, 2006
November 24, 2006 until January 23, 2007

The Lukas Feichtner Gallery presents in cooperation with the ALEXANDER OCHS GALLERIES BERLIN I BEJING recent positions in photography from a young and uprising generation of Chinese artists on the occasion of the Month of photography.

Photography is used in its whole variety for a critical view on historical backgrounds of China, while taboos are stressed ingeniously to appear as new ironic compositions. We are pleased that there is an additional possibility to get in touch with contemporary Chinese art in the Sammlung Essl.

Since 2002 Miao Xiaochun (born 1964) works with colour digital technology. His recent works show a new perspective on renowned Renaissance-masterpieces from Michelangelo.

Rong Rong (born 1968) & Inri ( born 1973) do not just work with modern technology. Hand-made prints on lightly wavy baryt paper is subsequently often coloured with dissonant colours. The boundary between photography and painting becomes permeable. Although in Chinese landscape painting the human

The focus of a documentary or visualisation of a childhood memory, the photo works of the artist duo Shao Yinong (born 1961) & Muchen (born 1970) allow significant places to emerge as eloquent witnesses of their time. The best-known project is the series Assembly Halls. Some 200 photographs depict former assembly halls from the days of the counter-revolution in their present state. Rooms and objects serve as silent chronicles of fast social change.
