Let see his Interview!
Hello Liwei. Could you please introduce yourself, and explain to these French people what is your photo Style?
I’m a contemporary artist, I mainly use photography or sometimes sculptures to express myself. My photo is merged a lot with the performance art element because before turning into photography, I was a performance artist. You can find a lot of humor, impossible scenes in my images. I want to use the image to show my living situation, to show the dangerous and unstable side of this society.
What do you want to represent with
I want to show how the impossible change to the possible.
Could you select the Top Ten Pictures that you prefer!
Well. I like “Li Wei falls to Hong Kong”, “29 levels of freedom”, “the baby leaves away from the earth”,“Ahead 1″. “live at the high place” , “Balloons”.”Buddha in Paris”
How did you realize your photography?
I use photoshop actually but is in the stage of postproduction. I need to use photoshop to remove the wires. I make the real shot because the experience of performance art is the most important element of my works.
Right now, what are you preparing? (expo, work, advertising for a brand… )
I’m preparing some exhibitions in 2013.
You went to France, How was it?
Yes, this March. My collaboration with Parc de la Villette is quite successful. I made the Buddha series.
Chinese has a bad image for creativity, according to you: the new generation of Chinese artists can change something?
What service you offer, what do you search for?
I work with art institutions, museums mostly. Sometimes I also work with big companies for advertising
