Thursday, September 16, 2010 Gravity Defying Photographs of Li Wei

    Chinese artist Li Wei’s work often depicts him in apparently gravity-defying situations. Li, who is from Beijing, started off his performance series ‘Mirroring’ and later on took off attention with his ‘Falls’ series which shows the artist with his head and chest embedded into the ground. His work is a mixture of performance art and photography that creates illusions of a sometimes dangerous reality. Li Wei states that these images are not computer montages and works with the help of props such as mirror, metal wires, scaffolding and acrobatics.
