nevver: Tattoo You One of Zhang Huan’s most...

One of Zhang Huan’s most powerful works, Family Tree was created two years after he left China to live and work abroad, leaving behind potential persecution as well as family and friends. Dealing with issues of cultural identity, familial relationships, and self-expression, this installation creates a moving image of the isolation felt with the loss of one’s past. The artist had three Chinese calligraphers cover his face with poems, tales, tales, and family names from his homeland.

BRAZIL: PHOTOGRAPHY: HEITOR MAGNO In this series of portraits and double exposure self-portraits, Heitor uses glitch art and pixelation to convey emotions unknown. By interfering with the image and identity, what’s left is a void—an image of what is oppressed and corrupted. In totality this is a reflection of the collective, anonymous and unstable internet cultural identity. Find Heitor and MP on Facebook here and here.
