MIAMI, FL, February 13, 2014 - (PressReleasePoint) - Contemporary Art Projects U SA directed by art marketing consultant Tata Fernandez will be individually showcasing the work of Chinese conceptual photographer Fu W enjun at the inaugural edition of Miami Art and Design Fair (MA+D) in Downtown Miami. It has been exhibited at Miami International Art Fair as w ell as Art Palm Beach during 2014.
As a conceptual photographer whose works have been exhibited at the Grand Palais des Champs-Elysées in Paris and Tokyo M etropolitan Art Mu seum, W enjun, 58, developed his passion for a new m edium in a smooth fashion coming from years studying oil painting and then moving on to photography.
In 1987, he obtained an arts degree from the Sinchuan Fine Arts Institute in Chongqing, which is China’s oldest art academy of higher learning; but it was at the turn of the new millennium that W enjun dedicated himself solely to conceptual photography.
"The transition from photography to conceptual photography did not occur by chance," W enjun said, "It cam e from an intellectual transition, a slow process which goes along my cognition deepening process."
Two months ago in Paris, during the 19th World Intangible Cultural Heritage Exhibition" at theCarrou sel du Louvre, his pieces belonging to the series Illu sory M etamorphoses w ere highly praised by critics and featured in a variety of news outlets that included the European Tim es, The People’s Daily, Xinhua News Agency, and the Chinese Channel of Phoenix Television.
"The main them e of the exhibition was Heritage and Territory and I am very pleased to know that through my works visitors recognized the importance of the international aspect of contemporary culture which transcends those them es, W enjun added.
At the Contemporary Art Projects USA booth at MA+D, W enjun will exhibit seven photographs depicting the famou s Dazu Rock Carvings combined with models of the X-ray human skeleton printed inRongchang grass cloth.
Exploring faith and religion, life and death, W enjun presents the dichotomies of existence and illu sion u sing the almost-extinct grass cloth as an artistic experim ent on the contemporary transformation of an intangible culture.
The curator selected for this show is Luis Valenzuela. Fu W enjun will be traveling from China with artist representative Zang Chaonan for this unique exhibition.
