The Body Understood by Li Hui

Capturing either an arm in motion or a body trapped in a captivating immobility, Li Hui explores the different ways of considering the body in photography. Through a process of layering Hui superimposes the human body onto the natural body – a landscape or mountain. This very strong awareness of the physicality of things is what makes Hui’s work so interesting.

While many of her photographs emphasize the softness or elegance of the female body, the viewer slowly loses track of the notion of a gendered photograph. The images becomes genderless, appealing merely to the viewer’s aesthetic sensibilities and analytical investments in understanding not only the physicality of the image but of the photograph itself.

Just like what Egon Schiele, one of my favorite painters, said:
“I want to taste dark water and see crackling trees and wild winds.”
