Ren Hang PhotographyErotica // Thursday, 11 Apr 2013
Ren Hang's photographs are provocative and awesomely weird. He works and lives in Beijing, and he won the third TERNA Italy prize in 2011. Hang examines the strange interactions of the body, juxtaposing flowers and nude limbs in absurdly-cropped compositions to highlight the negative space that develops between people. Splashes of red strawberries or flowers often punctuate these photos, making them pieces of graphic design as well as photographs. Ren Hang's work addresses the absurdity of the human and the form it inhabits.
