Over de expositie
Fontana Gallery is proud to present an exciting combination of two series by award winning photographer Morad Bouchakour: Las Vegas (2005) and his latest project Peking Dog. The exhibit features a spectacular photograph of the famous Circus Circus casino. With an impressive 6 meters wide, splashing colors and high gloss finish this piece is bound to catch your attention. The Peking Dog series represents a completely other side of the glamour spectrum. Here the artist focuses on the new status symbols of China’s rising middle and upper class in Beijing’s historical hutong neighborhoods: cars and dogs, and the conflict this creates. Although very different in appearance, both series are excellent examples of Bouchakour’s talent to expose the real world’s undercurrent.
