The Last Night is a solo exhibition by the Beijing-based artist Chen Wei, which stares at the urban space. From large-scale photography to cross-media lighting installations, the landscapes in these works are full of intimacy, and the still life also reveals magnificence. Between fiction and reality, man-made objects and fragments, his works tell the common experience of urbanites: dreams, malfunctions, afterimages and memories are mixed.
They form a “New City” landscape that resists abstraction, and firmly preserves concrete objects and life experiences. The nostalgic sentimentality is difficult to shelter in the present, so in the exhibition, bid farewell to the sad gaze of the past, it looks ahead and sees a new city under construction.
