Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Shanghai’s Suzhou Creek has lived many lives. Formerly accented by endless rows of Shikumen lane houses, this river served as a line of demarcation between factions competing for the heart and purse of Shanghai City. It wasn’t too long after the Americans and Brits decided to work together (creating the so-called “International Concession”) that the river served as barrier between the neutral concession and invading forces during wartime. Today, the war is long over and almost all the Shikumen are gone, replaced instead by massive apartment complexes housing over 60 million people. Instead of being a barrier between hostile and opposing forces or an industrial dumping site, the Suzhou Creek now reflects the seemingly unbounded economic and cultural strides made by Shanghai throughout the 21st century. To many of us living in Shanghai, the Suzhou Creek represents home. It’s comforting to see the lights bouncing off of its surface from the sky scrapers that line its perimeter. It’s nostalgic to walk along its edges and remember the romantic walks and hard talks had on its shores. Much like your parents and heroes, this river represents everything you think it does… and much that you do not.
