BASICALLY, THEY ARE JUST SEPARATED, 2019, HD 1:00 min

The One Minutes Series of this summer is 'Old Images' curated by Tao Hui. The series consists of 16 one-minute videos produced by international artists and filmmakers, investigating the concept of realism. 'Xie Zhen' is a Chinese word in traditional Chinese painting. It mainly refers to portraits of people. 'Xie Zhen' means strong resemblance to the subject. Old Images investigates how to integrate this concept into our current visual culture. The work is also questioning the actuality and validity of images and movies especially on social media platforms.
