Jiang Pengyi présente "Luminant"
Blindspot Gallery is pleased to present Jiang Pengyi’s Luminant series at Blindspot Gallery in May and to announce our participation in the ASIA ONE section of the Hong Kong International Art Fair this year featuring Jiang’s Unregistered City and latest series.
When Jiang moved from his less developed hometown to the rapidly changing Beijing, the culture shock bred a deep sense of alienation in him amid the bustling city.

Jiang Pengyi Solo ExhibitionBorn in Huan in 1977, Jiang Pengyi was discovered at the Lianzhou International Photo Festival 2007. With his Two series "All Back to Dust" and "Luminant", he is showing a dreadful for the skycrapers. In "Luminant", skycrapers are the new landmarks in our modern cities. Taken with a large format camera using long exposure times and framed in light boxes to accentuate their brightness, Jiang Pengyi's overexposed buildings seem to warm the viewers about the power of manipulation they carry out. In those multilayered and anonymous metropolises, they embody the frghtening reflect of "the Society of Spectacle".
