中国の若手作家チェン・ウェイは、写真を主な表現技法としながらも、映画の一シーンを彷彿させるような審美眼と作風で国内外の注目を浴びる。ときにサスペンス映画のもつスリル感を前面にだしつつ、その作品の多くは詩的な情緒を帯び、見る者に様々な想像の余地をもたらす。杭州から北京へとベースを移し、着々とキャリアを積んできたチェンの作品は、近年アジアとヨーロッパ、アメリカ各地で評価を高めている。想像の世界を描いたような作品とは裏腹に自己認識や社会問題に敏感なチェンの作品は、作家本人の成長とともに技法・テーマともにおいて成熟度を増し、常に新しいシリーズへの挑戦を止めることはない。 Chen Wei (b. 1980) lives and works in Beijing.
