This country is at the core of our changing world. Globalization is a daily reality experienced at every moment. Looking at China today, it is facing the world that surrounds us.
We believe deeply that China is experiencing a tremendous period of creativity that harks back to Paris in the 1920's or New York in the 1960's or at least how we imagined those times to be. We want to share this with you.
From its history and its present, China opens a new perspective on modernity, a new space of thought between East and West. This is where a new culture is being invented, along with a new way of understanding the world.
We want to show another China, a more creative one, a more innovative one and a freer, funnier one...
We start our editorial journey with photography. This is because we believe it to be a medium with which everyone is familiar and that we understand to be more intuitive than traditional art forms.
Imaginary landscapes, over scaled works, trompe-l'oeuil, scenes with hundreds of extras... A generation of Chinese artists are proposing new visual forms to represent the world and produce images that surprise and delight us.
Together, they reinvent a photograph that often rhyme with painting, sculpture, performance... to better transcend reality.
Our interests go well beyond photography. At Thircuir we are already working on our next series and have a lot of other surprises in store!
