China’s Lishui Photographers: Land – Era – People

April 7, 2011 - May 27, 2011

First Friday Reception: April 15th, 6-9pm

Home is a bridge between ourselves and the rest of the world. The corridor bridges of China’s Zhejiang Province funnel traffic, while also staying true to designs over 1,000 years old incorporating gathering areas and sacrificial offering spaces within the bridge construction. It is in the patterns of daily life that the stories are told–through the tools we use to get us from one hour to the next, to prepare food, to shore up the houses of ourselves. It is in how the footprints line up across the earth we walk. It is in our work, it is in our faces peering back at one another from across a table, through a window, or while looking at a photograph.

This exhibition is an excerpt of a larger collection of images by six photographers from Lishui City in China’s southwestern mountain region, the Zhejiang Province. Land – Era – People brings glimpses from each of the artists’ sight-lines of daily life as it is lived, noticed, preserved, and honored amidst a country of rapid expansion and urbanization. The cultural patterns give way, ultimately, to reflect human moments and a respect for the worlds presented in each.
