Chen Wei’s photographic works carry an irresistible sense of proximity. Through careful scenography, he endows his images with a sense of the literary, creating a world of resolute existence. In the five photographs shown here, Chen Wei begins by gently mocking his own anxieties as an artist, turning the artist’s hopeless wait for inspiration into a contradictory commentary on the gap between expectation and reality.

This artwork was featured in the UCCA exhibition "ON | OFF: China’s Young Artists in Concept and Practice, ” 2013
