Photographs and texts on paper; performance
In this work, GENG Jian Yi deliberately juxtaposed photographs with texts on papers -- or the photographs were artificially manipulated by other means -- to invite the audiences to take photographs as "inconvertible" truth. "It inspired an ongoing fascination with the medium."
