Chinese Visual Festival 2011 中国视像艺术节

Chinese Visual Festival 2011

Li Wei

The first cycle this year of the Chinese Visual Festival (June - July 2011), Lost in Transformations, presents art and events on the theme of conversations between arts and moving images. Lost in Transformation presents UK audiences with contemporary Chinese reality from a refreshing new perspective itself comprising multiple perspectives via conversations between arts and moving images.

Li Wei

Addressing various issues in today’s China, the event combines different art forms and genres of film which respond to present Chinese lives and landscapes with criticism, self-ethnography, sarcasm, humour and passion. Exotic or bizarre to the UK audiences they might look, stories in China actually relate to the very current concerns in British society. These conversations between arts and moving images unveil not just a country of long ancient history and an intimidating large population, but also a China which experiences as much pain and gain as the UK in a fast changing world.

Lost in Transformation clearly reflects a unique Chinese story portraying unknown faces of ordinary Chinese people, their lives, faiths and beliefs and the pressures and stresses they confront daily. Photography and video have become increasingly important vehicles of artistic expression. In a lot of aspects, the diverse nature of photography and video has become increasing important to recording the rapid change that is now taking places. Five photographers and video artists, CaoFei, Adrian Fisk, Li Wei, Lin Zhipeng and Yang Yankang use their cameras to reveal a kaleidoscope of emotion and feeling in China’s vast 1.35 billion population in a fast changing society.
