Singapore, March 2015 — ShanghART Gallery is pleased to host Jiang Pengyi’s solo
exhibition, Intimacy from 28th March to 17th May 2015, featuring 26 photography artworks, 21 of which are unique work on Polaroid and 5 on archival inkjet print.
Jiang Pengyi creates surreal, illusory yet delicate images mostly on film. Known for his relentless experimentation and exploration on light with time, space and various medium, he is named The Explorer of Light by Gu Zheng, one of China’s the most influential photography theorists and art critic. His exhibiting series ‘Intimacy’ capture reflections of light, in which he produces them through the use of the florescent paper and the photographic film by means of a silver salt treatment. The ‘Inconsolable Memories’ presents a series of Polaroids, which the artist describes the aged film like memories left by a gerontic man.
Jiang Pengyi’s study of light encompasses the basis of occurrence and tolerance, similarly,
reflecting the spiritual level of an artist communicating with, presenting and absolutely
‘Intimacy’ is a story, an allegory on Light.
