Curated by Alasdair Foster, Director of the Australian Center for Photography, Sydney, the works in the exhibition Imagining the everyday, presented at the Pingyao International Photogrpahy festival, do not deal in ‘straight’ documentary. Instead they map out an expressive journey between cultures, as these quintessentially Australian artworks explored ideas drawn from Chinese numerology. Arranged in 10 interconnected rooms, each featuring the work of two artists, the journey lead from yin–yang through metamorphosis, luck and prosperity to longevity and ultimately rebirth.
