Reception: Thursday, February 21, 2019 6-8 PM



Born and raised in Fujian, China, artist Yong Chen uses photography to document the passage of time. After several memory lapses, Chen started using his camera to record moments in his life as they unfold in real-time. In his work, Biological Timer_Breathing, we see a long strip of film that shows his subject breathing in and out. Recording this small, simple act reminds us of the preciousness of life. Our memories shape our understanding of the world. Chen asks us to remember and cherish these everyday moments before they fade from our memories all together.
