Curatorial Statement 

There is a baffling power that photography has: it’s a source of reliable evidence, a means to document atrocity; it’s a proof of data, and one of the most effective ways to recreate historical events. However, with the advent of photography as an artform, photographers and artists alike have begun to use photographs to construct fictional narratives. These narratives test the boundaries between the real and the imagined, snaring viewers in suspended belief and convincing them that what they are presented with is a reality. Across the spectrum of contemporary photography, from Joan Fontcuberta to Zoe Leonard to Walid Raad, many influential photographers have used the image as a means to create a fictional archive. In doing so, they have broadened the band through which a photo’s narrative can be told and challenged the authority that photography has to define what is truly history.

‘A Fictional Narrative Turn’ focuses on the varying creative practices of 8 photographers. Through both a historical and cultural lens, the show considers the possibilities created when a photograph’s relationship with reality is challenged; moreover, it seeks to understand what function photographs serve when constructing a fictional narrative. Throughout the exhibition this develops in different ways.

The works of British photographer Alexandra Lethbridge serve as a mythical metaphor for everyday life in ‘The Meteorite Hunter’; Cheng Xinhao’s ‘Time from Different Sources’ is a body of work that deconstructs and then regroups the buildings, objects, images and people from Saman village of the different historical origins. He Bo and Xu Lei explore the symbolic development of the selfie in the 1980’s in ‘Selfiers: Sealed with Images’; Julio Galeote’sTropical Ornament’, which investigates the relationship between reality and fiction and its representation, consists a first stage of documentation of historical images from Miami’s photographic archive and second images that constructed in his study. Li Chaoyu’s ‘After One Hundred Years’ revisits the greatest inventions and discoveries of the 20th Century; and Italian photographer Tommaso Tanini reflects on totalitarianism in East Germany in ‘H. said he loved us.’ In another vein, Yang Yuanyuan discusses the history of photography and its development as a medium in ‘At the Place of Crossed Sight (Part one),’ looking at how the relationships between photographers, photos, cities, and memories have become inexorably tangled together. Lastly, Zhang Zhizhou uses his works in ‘Photographer S——After Masahisa Fukase’ to focus his gaze on the inner workings of photography itself, using an imagined ‘photographer S,’ to recreate the intertwined nature of the photographer and the history of photography.

These eight works stem from different historical events and the different views of each photographer on how contemporary culture seeps into every day life. It is through this series of imagined characters, events, and objects that these archives, photographs, creations, and installations are able to truly interact.

摄影具有一种迷惑性的权威,被看做是一种提供可靠证据的手段,在纪录暴行、调查取证、还原历史过程中起到了重要的作用。然而,从摄影术诞生开始,便有摄影师和艺术家虚构照片的叙事来测试现实和虚构之间的界限,把观众的注意力引向摄影作为现实的一种错觉的圈套。在当代摄影的光谱中,从胡安·冯库贝尔塔(Joan Fontcuberta)到佐伊·莱昂纳德(Zoe Leonard),再到瓦利德·拉德(Walid Raad),这几位来自不同地域, 且颇具影响力的摄影师利用照片为手段建立虚构的档案,在拓宽了摄影的叙事空间的同时,挑战着摄影在建构历史终的真实权威。


展览作品包括英国摄影师亚历山德拉·莱斯布里奇(Alexandra Lethbridge)隐喻平凡生活之神奇的《陨石猎人》(The Meteorite Hunter);程新皓将茨满村在不同历史中起源的建筑,物件,图像,包括身处其中的人们被拆解和重组,形成叙事虚构的《来源不同的时间》;何博、许雷两人对“自拍”主题在20世纪80年代表征进行探索的《自拍者:尺笺传影》;西班牙摄影师朱利奥·加莱奥特(Julio Galeote)的《热带装饰》(Tropical Ornament ),该作品融合了他所收集的迈阿密历史图像文件,以及在后期研究中所构建的图像,尝试讨论现实、虚构及其再现之间的关系;李超瑜意在探索和回顾那些发生在20世纪中的重大发现和发明的《百年之后》;意大利摄影师托马索·塔尼尼(Tommaso Tanini)反思东德极权主义的《H.说他爱我们》(H. said he loved us);杨圆圆讨论摄影史的进程中,摄影师、照片、城市、记忆、迁徙等多个元素之间错综复杂的关系的《在视线交错之处(上篇)》; 以及张之洲的《摄影师S — 在深濑昌久之后》,他在作品中将视线投向摄影的内部,通过虚构摄影师S, 再现了拍摄者与摄影史之间的纠结。
