REN HANG PHOTOGRAPHY: PHYSICAL BORDERLINE
PHYSICAL BORDERLINE Ren Hang Photography
Ren Hang was a young contemporary photographer based in Beijing. Despite China’s harsh restrictions on sexuality in the arts, Hang’s photography heavily featured nude appearances, often of his friends and lovers.
Physical Borderline accompanied Hang’s 2014 exhibition of the same name. In the photos, Hang drops all knowledge of the word “taboo” and arranges his (mostly naked) subjects to assume myriad strange and imaginative forms. Physical Borderline is one more testament of Hang’s playful exploration of sexuality and his approach to liberate the human body from any restraints.
