30 Pieces of Photographic Works by Chinese Artists Maleonn and Jiang Pengyi at Blindspot Gallery
Maleonn, What Love Is, No. 1, 2009, Inkjet print, 90 x 135 cm, Edition of 8.
HONG KONG.- A Departure from Reality III: The Tender Truth features over 30 pieces of photographic artworks from 10 different series by Mainland Chinese artists Maleonn and Jiang Pengyi at both The Blindspot Gallery and Blindspot Annex in Hong Kong.

Maleonn is one of the most famous Chinese artists in conceptual photography. Ma’s photographs are filmed both on location and in studio, his previous professional work as a TV commercial director gives a staged quality to both his indoor and outdoor shots. And Ma often participates in his art by incorporating the use of his own facial masks and body parts. His staged photography represents a whimsical world, with total manipulation of space and matters. In one of the series What Love Is, the phantom objects include fire flames, butterflies, flowers, decorative lights and paper-cut figures on a miniature red-curtained stage. These make-shift elements seem to signify that ‘Love’ is like a dream/play.

Jiang Pengyi moved from his less developed hometown to the rapidly changing Beijing when he was a teenager, the cultural shock bred a deep sense of alienation in Jiang amid the bustling city. Excessive urbanization, demolition, redevelopments are recurrent themes in his art. In his series Unregistered City, Jiang uses digital manipulation to place new skyscrapers from real life among demolished sites of city expansion. Jiang intends to diminish the presence of human beings in his works, yet most of the images are filled with traces of human activity.

Born in Shanghai, Maleonn received his art training at Shanghai University and Shanghai Huashan Art School. Ma’s works have been exhibited extensively worldwide. He now lives and works in Shanghai.

Jiang Pengyi
Born in Hunan Province, Jiang graduated from Beijing Institute of Art & Design. He has participated in various exhibitions and first gained attention for his “All Back to Dust” series. He is currently based in Beijing.
