The Endless Circle

 

2019

 

It was a spring in 1979. An old man painted a circle on the South China Sea.” That "circle" is the SEZ border. In 2015, the SEZ border control, a man-made separate Shenzhen Economic Special Zone from other regions, was abolished. Four years later, I photographed the historic traces of the eight checkpoints and the process of melting with the new policy. In this complex atmosphere, I try to explore the impact of this policy on me and my family, as well as millions of people who live and care about the city.

 

 

作品名:漫长的圈

 

“1979年,那是一个春天,有一位老人在中国的南海边写下一个‘圈’”。那个“圈”就是二线关。1983年,深圳成立了经济特区,许多人以为特区是一个政策经济层面的概念,殊不知,它同时也是一个实实在在的地理概念,一条长84.6公里、高2.8米的铁丝网将深圳分割成了两个部分。2015年,这条人为割裂开深圳特区内外的鸿沟——二线关政策被废除了。四年后,我在原关口的位置上拍下了八个关口的历史痕迹以及与新举措叠合的消融过程。在这种复合气息中,将社会问题带入私人领域以讨论政治政策对个人的影响。
