My things, Scan

MAMbo - Museo d'Arte Moderna di Bologna
3 October - 1 November 2015


My Things. The project that I started in 2001 is a photography series created by scanning objects. I’ve been working on this project for 12 years. 12 years, in the Chinese traditional concept, represents the period of transmigration in cycles of different fates and destinies. The process of producing works of this series is an assignment associated with one’s life trace.
Day by day, I put my daily consumed objects into a scanner piece by piece, like keeping a visual diary. After scanning the original objects, I save them in digital forms and categorise these digital files in different folders in my PC, in order to make a collage of them later on. This task, like a yogi’s daily practice, has become a habit in my day-to-day life as well as a tool to observe the human condition in contemporary consumer society.




The exhibit by Hong Hao is part of the theme section POST-PRODUCTION of FOTO/INDUSTRIA 2015, the second Biennial promoted and organized by the MAST Foundation with the artistic direction of François Hébel. Fourteen exhibitions with free admission, dedicated to industrial photography, enterprise and work, and housed in prestigious locations of Bologna historical centre and at MAST. The exhibits are curated by Urs Stahel.
