 STATEMENT by Zhang Kechun

 "Carrying out this photograph project is because of the inspiration after reading the novel River of the North written by Zhang Chengzhi. Attracted by the powerful words in this novel, I decided to take a walk along the Yellow River to experience and feel the father-like broad and wide brought from this river, so that I could find the root of my soul .while along the way, the river from my mind was inundated by the stream of reality. The river, which once was full of legends, had gone and disappeared. That is kind of my profound pessimism. Nevertheless, as a vast country with a long history, its future is always bright. There is a descent in the matrix; there is her own nutrition to feed her babies; there is the power of creation to cultivate them strongly. The weak moaning finally will be drowned by the shout for joy. From this point of view, it seems, all shall be optimistic."

THEBOOKSHOP
by THEBOOKSHOW

THEBOOKSHOW is a Singapore-based initiative that began in 2014. It aims to act as a platform for aspiring artists to showcase books conceived out of passion. Through the use of the book, a basic and familiar medium, THEBOOKSHOW advances towards being a mediator between the art world and the general public. Our hope is to bring a renewed perspective upon our eyes. We believe very much in challenging the medium - moving away from the conventional form that the book takes. In time, we hope to build a substantial database advocating that the book form is an art in and of itself.
