Dreamed-Breeze is a series of installations composed of pinwheels and still-life photographs. Spinning in the wind and warm light, images on the transparent blades and the pinwheels themselves constantly cast shadows on the wall like a slideshow, which get blurred in high winds, or, conversely, become clear when the wind blows slowly. The artists contrast the past moments documented through images with the present uncertainty in a lyrical way, and body the freedom and power of wind through the playful pinwheels. In the still-life theatre Dreamed displayed in the same exhibition space, the ferocious-looking food of all colours, dolls in wild clothes as well as vivid scene-setting in the photographs all come from the real image of two artists, or can be viewed as a metaphor for them. The dramatic lighting effects in still-life photographs echo the LEDs in frames, making the photos appear to be floating in the light. The glossy silks around photographs also add to the soft atmosphere. Courtesy ShanghART.
