Jiang Pengyi’s (蒋鹏奕) photography responds to China’s changing social, political, and physical landscapes. Born in Hunan Province, the artist is interested in the passage of time and its effect on society; he is particularly interested in the transformation of Beijing’s urban landscape and the possibilities for how it will look several decades from now. His art-making process often involves time-lapse photography and the gradual destruction of his material, as he seeks to eliminate proof of the artist’s hand. He created his “Everything Illuminates” series by pouring a mixture of wax and fluorescent pigment onto objects and photographing the substance using a long exposure. In the resulting images, the objects’ original functions are erased, leaving the viewer with a sense of destruction.
