Photo Fringe First Monday – 4 November 2019
6.00pm to 8.00pm
Talk at 6.30pm
Join us on Monday for some friendly photo chat at Phoenix Art Space.
This month we are delighted to be joined by Feiyi Wen, a UK-based artist shortlisted for BPF OPEN18 SOLO award.
Feiyi Wen is a visual artist and researcher who lives and works in London. She works across photography, moving image, sound and installation. She is currently undergoing a practice-led PhD at Slade School of Fine Art (UCL). She received her Master’s degree in Fine Art Photography from Royal College of Art, London.
A winner of many awards, including the Magnum Graduate Photographers Award 2016, her work has been featured in exhibitions around the world. Her work was selected for the In Between Gallery, Fabrica's large street-facing window display, in 2017.
Wen is particularly looking into how we experience the landscape and how narrative alters memory through visual practice. Working with mixed media, such as family archive, photographs, paper ephemerals, texts, letters and video installation, Wen seeks traces of uncertain identity in her family history. The investigation takes place through the fuzzy memories of family members oral stories. By investigating family photographs, letters and other material, she is trying to put the fragmental pieces together into some kind of order, testing the interplay between autobiography and imagination.
We look forward to seeing you there.
Canvas Cafe will be open to serve hot and cold drinks and delicious snacks before the event.
