Yishu - Journal of Contemporary Chinese Art

RongRong and Inri’s Caochangdi at the Republic Gallery, Guest-Curated by Yishu Managing Editor Zheng Shengtian

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

Caochangdi explores the relationship between the home and its inhabitants while documenting the evolution of a family through images of the artists with their children. The series continues an ongoing focus on the beauty of the human being in nature and the urban environment. RongRong and Inri are a husband and wife photography team native to China and Japan, respectively, and have been working together since 2000. Their work reflects the intimate world that they have created together, while pushing the boundaries of traditional black-and-white darkroom techniques.

The exhibition is guest-curated by Zheng Shengtian.
