M97 Gallery is pleased to present “ADOU”, an exhibition of artist Adou’s new series of photographs. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition in China and he will be present at the opening reception on Saturday January 12, from 4 to 6 in the afternoon.
In this lastest series of works, aptly titled after the artist himself, Adou goes to the root of the individual and the camera, the photo-grapher in front of the lens, seen and unseen, both photo-grapher and subject of his photographs. While making photographs in the mountains of Sichuan for his “Samalada” series of portraits, Adou once said “There is no difference between taking a picture of others and myself. The camera may be pointed outward, but whether you like it or not, it always reveals you”.
