In a series of rigorously upright photographs titled "Rock Never," Xiang Liqing (b. 1973) presents another reaction to the architectural changes and breakneck construction of skyscrapers in Shanghai. Numerous traditional-style housing communities have been leveled to make room for postmodern shopping centers, office buildings and apartment complexes. Rigid apartment high-rises bespeak the discipline that push horizontally structured communities into vertical organizations of order and control. Xiang Liqing's photographs, with their grid-like facades of contemporary residential buildings, scrutinize these symbols of architecturally controlled life. Their extreme upright format and cold black-and-whiteness give an impression of the narrowness in the streets between all these skyscrapers. Unlike other artists-photographers who focus on the high-speed development of China's urban areas, Xian Liqing reflects on the coolness and tightness of existing in these "dwelling machines."
