anothermountainman: Lanwei

7 Oct - 11 Nov 2012

Venue: Blindspot Annex (Wong Chuk Hang) & Blindspot Gallery (Central)

Taken over the course of six years (2006-2012), the project started in major Mainland Chinese cities but soon extended to other cities in Asia including Taipei, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok and Singapore. The large format photographs depict scenes of hundreds of construction projects left aborted due to the bursting of economic bubbles in the previous decade. The images do not reflect solely the issues found in the economic downturns. They also capture the failures in other aspects of people’s lives.

Taking place at both our sites, Blindspot Gallery (Central) and Blindspot Annex (Wong Chuk Hang), anothermountainman will be showing over 40 select works including his most recent unannounced works from Lanwei, concluding the 6-year long project taken in Asia.

The Lanwei series is collected by M+ Museum, Hong Kong.
