She Dreams – Yan Wang Preston

24 September - 10 February 2018

Exhibition in LiverpoolONE shopping center, at both sides of Peter’s Lane: outside Caffé Nero and next to Kiehl’s.

In 2013, Chinese President Xi called for a ‘China Dream’, a national drive for ambition to answer the ‘American Dream’. This ‘China Dream’ encourages young people to “work assiduously to fulfil their dreams and contribute to the revitalization of the nation”.

Photographer Yan Wang Preston moved from Shanghai to the UK in 2005. Reflecting on her own experience as a young woman coming to the UK, Yan worked with a group of local students from China. They are part of a new future-facing generation, with a fresh sense of individualism and global citizenship, not just restricted to China.

Throughout the project, Yan asked the students to reflect on their personal daydreams, and how they depart from what their ‘national’ ambition might be. These daydreams and their accompanying sense of lightness and buoyancy are woven throughout the portraits, shot on a section of Crosby Beach littered with sea-polished war relics.

She Dreams is part of ‘China Dream’, a 9-month arts season celebrating Chinese contemporary art and culture, in partnership with University of Liverpool. It is presented by Open Eye Gallery, in partnership with Culture Liverpool.

The Liverpool 2018 programme celebrates ten years since the city’s game-changing year as European Capital of Culture, and is supported by the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority through the Single Investment Fund.
