Impermanent Instant | Li Jun
[Press Release]

The paradoxically named series, Impermanent Instant,exemplifies Li Jun’s photographic language that evokes the intangible by illuminating its absence. The series was shot over the course of three years (2008-2011) after the artist had let the objects in his Chengdu apartment sit and become layered with dust for one year. In tracing the contours left in dust by everyday objects, the photos draw the viewers’ focus to the impermanence of existence. Against the invisible yet reeling film of time, human life and its temporal concerns fade into the void. The entire creative process is a combination of performance art, installation and photography that encapsulates and distills the subject.
