Oh my lovely city

2013,
a set of 23 post cards
15 x 10.5cm

During my stay in China for several residency programs, I often saw images of depicting ideal cities in street posters. These images were drawn as “Utopias” besides slogans and these Utopian images were collected all throughout different parts of the city. These Utopian images used similar iconography in its rendering of the city. I photographed the posters and focused on the generic elements of these Utopias. I then created this set of postcards allowing the audience to have their own pocket sided versions of ideal Utopias.
