Publication Statement

Salford, United Kingdom : Viewpoint Photography Gallery , 1997


Scope and Content

Exhibition catalogue for 'Behemia' by Dinu LI held at the View Point Gallery in Salford in 1997, featuring photographs created by the artist whilst living for two years in Czechoslovakia with a Czech family.

Dinu Li presents us with a document of a Czech family juxtaposed with photographs from their own family album. This work is highly selective, honing in on a few key motifs, such as rituals of harvesting, cooking and pickling, and most importantly, Li's rendering of time. His own photographs cause a dialogue to take place between the two timeframes, sometimes poignant, sometimes funny. Li achieves an absorbing piece of work that bypasses the frenetic chaos that our cameras lead to, to escape disconnection, and to bring a calm sanity to this family's images.
