Flowing Waters Never Go Back to the Source @ Abbaye de Jumièges
Flowing Waters Never Go Back to the Source. Photographers looking at the river in China
July 15-November 29, 2020
““Flowing Waters Never Go Back to the Source. Photographers looking at the river in China” * focuses on the Chinese river, a seminal theme in contemporary photography in China, as seen through the eyes of thirteen photographers.
From the re-appropriation of traditional Chinese painting where idealized landscapes seem suspended in time (“mountain-water”) to the accelerated modernization of the country and its consequences on nature and environment, and visual narratives using its evocative power, the river has formed a recurring motif of inspiration for photographers in China for the past twenty years – whether they are Chinese or not.”
Exhibited artists: Yang Yongliang, Sui Taca, Luo Dan, Michael Cherney, Edward Burtynsky, Zhuang Hui, Chen Qiulin, Mu Ge, Liu Ke, Jia Zhangke, Zhang Xiao, Chen Ronghui, Zhang Kechun.
