Esther Schipper congratulates Tao Hui, nominated for the 2021 Jimei X Arles Discovery Award. Established by the Jimei x Arles International Photo Festival, the prize recognizes outstanding photographic work from a Chinese artist.

All ten nominees will present their work during the Seventh Jimei x Arles International Photo Festival, opening in Xiamen on November 26, 2021, and runs until January 3, 2022. The winner will be announced during the opening week and will receive an invitation to present a solo exhibition at Les Rencontres d’Arles in 2022.

Tao Hui creates photographs and immersive video-installations that bend the boundaries of fiction and reality to address cultural and identity related issues. His works are visceral and provocative, yet enlightening and always imbued with a strong emotional power and a sense of displacement, inviting the viewers to confront themselves with their own cultural history, ways of living and social identities.
