Conjured Futures: Artist's Statement

Xiang-yun Chen


“Escaping from the current political climate in America, a Brooklyn based Chinese photographer finds peace and beauty in Southeastern China. 

Largely influenced by “Wuwei”, a Chinese philosophy meaning, “non-doing”, Fu Jian is an on-going photo project focussed on Fujian province, China. Through this work, Xiangyun Chen creates a visual conversation between past and present, stillness and movement, and ultimately, a quiet observation of generations.”
