Galerie Urs Meile and Light Society are pleased to announce Miss the Target, the latest solo exhibition of Cai Dongdong (b. 1978), on view at Light Society’s location in Beijing. Cai Dongdong’s approach has always been “a reworking based on readymade photographs.” He introduces “photography” into the intricate, problematic field of image history or image-making history, attempting to complicate and discuss issues related to the essence of presentation and the power dynamic of viewing. This exhibition will include some of the most iconic photographs and installations from Cai Dongdong’s recent oeuvre. In his art, the grand narrative of history is demoted to an individualist perspective, the trajectory of the story quietly distorted by serial disruptions, and the intent of the image organically repurposed by displacements. The wit and humor in his works are not the only emotive qualities they possess, but the vivid spirit that aims to mingle with the complex history of generations.
