Shen Wei's House Frame on view at the Morgan Library & Museum

New at The Morgan, New York, NY
13 July - 31 October 2021

New York-based Chinese photographer Shen Wei's House Frame, 2015, is currently on view at the Morgan Library & Museum, New York, as part of their exhibition of recent acquisitions.
This work is from Between Blossoms, a photographic series featuring images taken on Wei's travels through Europe, the US and Asia. In the series, Shen Wei concentrates on the interactions between light and dark in the natural world, finding inspiration in old Chinese painting and its tradition of treating emptiness as solid space, as well as the concept of “qi” or chi — the life force that, according to ancient Chinese philosophy, runs through all natural phenomena.
