UCA MFA Photography graduate Sean (Xiaojian) is exhibiting his work in a solo exhibition called 'An Opposite Approach' (Nonentity and Nihility) in Beijing. "Xiaojian provides a different way to analyze space through his artwork. At first glance, it is difficult to find any objects within that correspond to it. From Computer Science to the Photography field, Xiaojian has always been obsessed with the order and balance dominated by pure logic. It pushes him to represent the space without intervening, but in a calm, rational and non-sensory way. For example, using the scanner to capture the existence of ‘nothingness’ above; visualizing the unsubstantial and random space between the actual input and program error; intercepting the film expanding to an image of perceptible spatial scale. When space can no longer be artificially occupied, appropriate, and restricted, it is then only discussed on a semantic and conceptual level. In a manner of speaking, it is an ‘imaginary number’ status of space. The reversal of occupation here breaks the common spatial cognition based on its materiality and interfaces. The seeming nothingness space opens up an approach to pure space to some extent. Furthermore, this alternative profile of ‘space’ also challenges the edge of vision and photography."
