Lexi Sun is a Chinese born photographer based in Berlin. She studied photography and philosophy in London at Central Saint Martins and has exhibited at the Tate Exchange, Tate Liverpool, Lethaby Gallery, Folkestone Fringe, Everyman&Playhouse, FACT Liverpool and Sluice Biennial followed by her first solo show at BLANK 100 in London. Her work has been published in Vogue, I-D China and F!Y Magazine. Lexi seeks rhythm and repetition in her work and seeks to produce images free from hierarchy as a rhizomatic exploration of existence. Her work explores rhythm in the process of folding, unfolding and refolding in repetition, which itself leads to infinity. By exploring the possibility of expiration and vanishing, through examining and negating the boundaries between fashion and art, she aims to build bridges between the disciplines and to contribute to the way we understand each other and ourselves. Her practice combines installation, performance, photography, moving image, and sound.
IN A MINUTE, I HAVE A MINUTE
In a minute, I have a minute (2016) is a photography series can be sensed as a spark fired in a timeless time. Inspired by the Hong Kong film ‘In the mood for love’, the red background and the nearness between two subjects share the same rhythm at the moment where there is a spark. The spark is invisible but can be sensed. In time, the spark is a strong emotional event between “what has just happened?” and “what is going to happen?”.
