Negative Reading | Reading Negatives
Time Out says
‘Negative Reading | Reading Negatives’ is a solo exhibition of new works by Chinese artist Qin Yifeng.
Both artist and scholar, Qin is a collector of Ming dynasty furniture. During his decades of collecting, he is constantly drawn to the damaged pieces of furniture, for he sees them as a metaphor for the changes in Chinese traditional values. Using his damaged antique wooden furniture as the subject, he creates negative images using a large-format camera.
