Chen Shaoxiong: Collective Memory—Foshan

Volume 13, Number 4, July/August 2014
by David Ho Yeung Chan

Article Description

In this paper, David Ho Yeung Chan discusses Chen Shaoxiong’s on-going Collective Memory series, which was created to subvert digital photography, taking photography as a whole back to its more rudimentary form. By inviting people who are living in Foshan to assist in the creation of Collective Memory—Foshan, the artist enhanced the human connection to the sites depicted in each of the images.
