Leo Gallery:Assembling Found Images
Leo Gallery Hong Kong is delighted to present Assembling Found Images, a group exhibition curated by Gu Zheng, one of China’s most influential photography theorists, critics and curators, and featuring three award-winning Chinese contemporary artists; Cai Dongdong, Lei Lei and Wang Ningde. The exhibition, which explores and challenges perceptions of photography as a medium, will showcase 14 recent and new works, encompassing photo sculpture, collage and video. Conceptually inspired by originators Marcel Duchamp and Pablo Picasso, the use of found objects has evolved into creation methods using the found image and found footage. Through the reconstruction of images and the concept of ‘the image’, as well as the use of found objects, the works exhibited collectively extend the visual scope of photography. Exhibition highlights including the photo sculpture by Cai Dongdong, the award-winning video work by Lei Lei and the No Name Series by Wang Ningde.
