In Some Time No.1

Jiang Pengyi

b. 1977, Yuanjiang, Hunan province, China

Jiang Pengyi graduated from the China Academy of Art, Hangzhou, in 2014. Jiang is an artist who constantly innovates with the infinitely generative potentialities of the photographic medium. His recent artistic evolution has taken him from digital photography to the experimentation with the materiality of photographic film, from the exteriority of excessive urbanisation to the interiority of human existence and sexuality. With the use of cameraless analogue technique, traditional darkroom processes, and the application of instant film materials and found images, Jiang creates large-scale abstracts works and unique sculpturesque instant-film objects.

Jiang has been awarded the Aletti ArtVerona Prize for Photography in 2011, the Jury Grand Prize from the Société Générale Chinese Art Awards in 2010 and the Tierney Fellowship Award from the First Annual Three Shadows Photography Award in 2009. Jiang was invited to participate in the Helsinki Photography Biennial 2012 and was nominated for the Prix Pictet 2012. His work is collected by The Burger Collection, CAFA Art Museum (China), DSL Collection (France), Frac des Pays de la Loire (France), Fondazione Banca Aletti (Italy), Guy & Myriam Ullens Foundation Collection (Switzerland), Kadist Art Foundation (France and USA), Tierney Family Foundation (USA), UniCredit Art Collection (Italy and Germany) and White Rabbit Contemporary Chinese Art Collection (Australia).

Jiang currently lives and works in Beijing, China.
