Organized by the Three Shadows Photography Art Centre and shown in Beijing in 2017, this exhibition received favorable comments from both experts and the general public.

Follow_Me: New narratives in contemporary photography, China – Switzerland
“Follow _Me: New Narratives in Contemporary Photography, China – Switzerland” , presented at the Exhibition Hall A and the Hall B of OCAT Shenzhen, shows 10 young photographers from China and Switzerland using the language of photography to build layers of overlapping narrations, and to discuss the similarities and differences between visual narratives and the impact of modern communication. Playing the role of author/photographer/narrator, the participating artists will once again invite the audience to “listen to me”, and, attempt to attract the audience to become new narrators by sending the “Follow Me” signals.
On Struggling to Remain Present When You Want to Disappear
The concept of “real” goes beyond the simple definition of truth, to encompass and question the norms and perceptions associated with both tangible and intangible forms of existence, thereby allowing the viewer to re-investigate the actual implications of “The time of the Real” we are in.
