3 Encounters, 7 Buildings, and 2500 Grains of Rice


UK graduate and photographic artist Jiang Yuxin projects the problem of identity differences in her work. Jiang Yuxin, graduate of the University of Westminster MA in Photographic Studies, has followed in the footsteps of British photographic theorist Victor Burgin regarding intertextuality and the image, applying postmodern theory to the practice of photography. Jiang Yuxin shines at combining images, still life and text in the process of reading and thinking about characters, to rethink familiar concepts of everyday life, involving psychoanalytical research on postmodern cultural theory.

Jiang Yuxin's latest work, 3 Encounters, 7 Buildings, and 2500 Grains of Rice, originally derived from the identity difference issues encountered during the time she studied and lived in London. The minutiae of daily conversations and encounters led her to question the production of identity differences in the solidification of national distinctions. Her work on the static photos, images and devices combines secret thinking activities into complex visual works, opening it unreservedly to the audience for repeated reflection on the topic.
