CRP/ : Bi Hu Suo


The Centre régional de la Photographie Hauts-de-France is devoting a group exhibition, with works it has produced, of four emerging Chinese artists Zhang Zhidong, Zeng Andong, Ye Wuji and Wang Yingying, the result of a curatorial dialogue between Hu Ruohao, young curator from Canton and Audrey Hoareau, director of the CRP/.

In Mandarin, Bi Hu Suo means “shelter”. It is also the title of this exhibition that determines young Chinese photography as a territory of exploration.

Prolific, turbulent, the new photographic scene has developed disproportionately in recent years in the Middle Kingdom and beyond.

What subjects animate this generation of artists who are all confronted or even stimulated by the burden of power and the history of such a complex nation?

With the internationalization of Chinese students, particularly in the fields of the arts, aspirations tend more and more towards unbridled artistic expression, including on social themes.

Through four selected works, the exhibition highlights the ability of these artists to adapt their creative process and to develop distorted, indirect approaches.

Sino-American relations, evocation of the cultural revolution, security themes or even gender issues, Zhang Zhidong, Zeng Andong, Ye Wuji and Wang Yingying have in common to tackle sensitive, current but delicate subjects.

The CRP/ an art center oriented towards the world and committed to the representation of all photographic writings and to freedom of expression gives visibility to these high quality works and therefore a state of the art of the emerging Chinese scene.
