With the opening of the country, a wind of freedom and optimism is blowing across China. Magically suspended in mid-air, the spectacular performances of Li Wei defy gravity, inviting us to transcend the realm of the possible, and re-think with humor and lightness the world as we know it, to extract ourselves for better a look at it.
Li Wei was born in Hubei in 1970. He is one of China’s most acclaimed performers, his works were shown at the Venice Biennale (2013), La Villette, Paris (2012), the Daegu Photo Biennale (2010), Images’ festival, Vevey (2010) and the Museum of Contemporary Art KIASMA, Helsinki (2009).
