Currently lives and works in Beijing. Chen Wei’s multimedia works toe the line between experimental illusion and the quotidian realities of contemporary society, focusing on the almost imperceptible dream sequences that exist in even the most mundane of moments. His staged photographs, at once idealistic and ominous, negotiate the symbolist tropes put forward by the medium of photography.
