Catalogue of solo exhibition by Qiu Zhijie at Chambers Fine Art, New York in 2007. Featured in the exhibition are photo-based works that unite several aspects of the artist's broad range of interests. In Twenty Four Seasons, Qiu used a flashlight to write the names of the traditional twenty-four seasonal markers (jieqi) in locations that range from Beijing to Macao and Dartington Hall in England. This series unites in meaningful way Qiu Zhijie's activities as calligrapher, performance artist and photographer. Gao Shiming wrote, 'Qiu Zhijie's writing photography pushes the temporality and happening quality of photography to the foreground. He calls the combination of writing and photography "calli-photo-graphy". Its meaning is not descriptive of the medium, but refers to a way of working. Here, photography regains its original meaning - to write with light. It recaptures the intrinsic temporality of photography.' Artist biography and artist writings are provided in the catalogue.
