Lianzhou Museum of Photography : A Zhang Hui retrospective – The Eye of Photography

As a result of his roots in the Chinese society, Zhang Hui’s work focused on social issues very early on. One and Thirty, Group Photos, Public Bathhouse, or Yumen Project: these projects are all reflections on the lives of the underprivileged in the Chinese society through experiments of intervention. Social issues such as political systems, modes of production, social relationship, personal identities and history have become the recurrent themes in Zhuang Hui’s work. These important explorations and the personal experience of the artist are what make up the “weight” of his work.
