A+ Contemporary cordially invite you to our booth N321 at the 2018 “West Bund Art & Design”. We will present artist Hu Weiyi’s latest photographic series “Tentacles” at the fair.

胡为一 Hu Weiyi,触角 Tentacles,2018,爱普生艺术微喷、哈内姆勒艺术纸、铝塑板 Epson ultra giclee print, Hahnemühle photo rag baryta, Aluminum panels, 425×240cm (11pcs)

Stage by stage, the presented three groups of works reinforce and interconnect with one another, circulating and circumscribing the exhibition space. Fleeting and transitory as they were, the works unfold an in-between state where the whimsical interweaves with the traumatic, inviting viewers to step inside a dreamy yet highly-tensioned site.
