Liu Bolin: Art Hacker

Klein Sun Gallery is proud to announce Art Hacker, a solo exhibition by the world-renowned Chinese artist Liu Bolin, on view from November 17 through December 23, 2016.

The exhibition marks Liu Bolin’s shift towards the virtual world, exploring this new territory artistically through Post-Internet Art. This new body of work consists of appropriations of classical Masterpieces — da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, Picasso’s Guernica — juxtaposed with a photograph of the devastating impact of the Tianjin explosions. Using complicated and precise hand-painted camouflage, Liu Bolin painstakingly recreates these images with scores of human subjects as his canvas. Through various methods, Liu Bolin’s new photographs have replaced the three subjects on numerous websites, which were targeted with image-search results on Google and Baidu, thus realizing the Hacker project. Neon installations of the URLs exhibited throughout the gallery pound home the transitory and delicate nature of the internet.

Quand un appareil photo connaît un grand succès, celui qui lui fait suite reprend le même nom, mais complété par le signe Markl-II, Mark-III…

Le mois dernier, vous avez fait un succès au numéro 388 de Chasseur d’Images, dont le thème principal était “Le Guide des appareils photo”. Ce mois ci-, voici donc la version Mark-II sous la forme d’un Chasseur d’Images n°389 dont le thème principal sera “Le Guide des Objectifs”.

Ce numéro est la synthèse de plusieurs centaines de tests d’objectifs, réalisés par le Centre d’Essais Chasseur d’Images. La rédaction a retenu les 150 plus intéressants du moment et vous livre à la fois ses mesures de labo, son commentaire technique sur les performances pures et les conclusions des essais de terrain.

Le “Guide Chasseur d’Images des objectifs” n’est pas juste un tableau listant ce qui existe: ce sont des tests, basés sur une procédure sérieuse et parfaitement stabilisée, permettant donc des comparaisons fiables. Vous y choisirez zooms et focales fixes en connnaisance de cause et non pas au hasard.

Mais ce numéro 389 ne se limite pas aux objectifs: il est aussi très complet et aborde quantité d’autres sujets, à la fois techniques et pratiques, sans oublier une grande partie culturelle, avec la liste de toutes les expositions du moment.

The most important lessons I’ve learned, are not being bothered about missing a shot, being patient, and how important it is to move around my subject for the best position to capture them.

Stuart Chape | Aerial Photography

Stuart Chape
I am an environmental and social photographer, undertaking a range of assigments but specialising in aerial photography, which I have been doing for more than 30 years.
As a number of photographers have discovered, the view from above can capture a unique perspective.

My own objective is to capture the reality of aerial views in a way that not only reveals patterns and designs but also the relationship of humans to nature and the built environment, as well as the beauty of nature – and environmental issues – seen from above.
