Cheng Xinyi - The Blower

40 EUR

blink at the silky space

empty windows blacked 

read within another time

when trees fell down

trembling bodies asked me

did dusty water make big fat rat stammer

or lonely manner of speaking brought up reference of love?

elevated smiles a single line breakfast shaking jewelry a comforting hand cheek pulling fabrics a dog-lover’s berry rolling moles a soil hitter a rooted kid grounded socking popcorns a literally sad virus 

The Blower is the first photography book of Cheng Xinyi showing her photography practice from 2012 to 2018. Cheng’s photography has a strong connection to her paintings which often address intermediate moments, desire and power dynamics.

The Blower is the second publication by BHKM, a house founded by Ho King Man.
