"The American Dream," Bin Feng's Thesis Exhibition

Join Bin Feng for an opening reception of The American Dream on Friday, May 27 from 7-10 p.m. at The Welmont Gallery, 1930 Montgomery Street, Savannah Georgia. The photo series continues to explore the idea of the American Dream from an eastern male gaze. Iconic elements such as "the white picket fence" and "the golden retriever dog" are employed to reconstruct the spectacle. Concealed as the relations between classes, the true character is revealed, and a social necessity has been secured in constructing the new spectacle as an illusive representation. By staging the moment of daily life, the artist performs as an actor and jumps between the fiction and reality, which essentially conveys the notion of the history of the man-the locomotive power behind the images, focusing on bicultural shock.
