PHOTOGRAPHY IS A TOOL FOR DEALING WITH THINGS EVERYBODY KNOWS ABOUT BUT ISN’T ATTENDING TO. MY PHOTOGRAPHS ARE INTENDED TO REPRESENT SOMETHING YOU DON’T SEE. EMMET GOWIN
INVISIBLE SHORE / MA HAIJIAO
DEC 21, 2018 – JAN 14, 2019
On December 21, at 7pm, the Zarya Air Workshop will celebrate the opening of “Invisible Shore,” an exhibition of photographs by Ma Haijiao (PRC), taken while the artist was in residence in Vladivostok. The exhibition will be on view until January 14, but to visit after the opening, you will need to first check in at the reception desk.
As the first Chinese artist to participate in the residency, Ma Haijiao reflects on the relationship between China and Russia, as it touches on both the history and present of Vladivostok. The two photographic series are based on the artist’s own impressions as he visited the city for the first time, serving as a kind of poetic interpretation of his experience.
