This catalogue is published to accompany anothermountainman's solo exhibition 'Lanwei' at Blindspot Gallery and Blindspot Annex, Hong Kong, from 7 October - 11 November 2012.

'Taken over the course of six years (2006-2012), the project started in major Mainland Chinese cities but soon extended to other cities in Asia including Taipei, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok and Singapore. The large format photographs depict scenes of hundreds of construction projects left aborted due to the bursting of economic bubbles in the previous decade. The images do not reflect solely the issues found in the economic downturns. They also capture the failures in other aspects of people's lives.' (from press release)

Includes artist statement and biography.


《爛尾》的拍攝過程長達六年(2006-­2012年), 由中國內地的主要城市開始, 隨即擴展至亞洲其他城市包括台北,吉隆坡,曼谷及新加坡等。大片幅相片描述了一幕一幕過去十年、因泡沫經濟爆破被擱置的建築項目。作品不但展現出經濟蕭條的景像及其帶來的問題, 更反映了人生不同層 面的挫折。 是次大型展覽分別於刺點畫廊(中環)和Blindspot Annex(黃竹坑 )同步舉行, 展出超過40張精選作品, 當中包括藝術家從未曝光之最新作品, 為《爛尾》系列在 亞洲長達六年的拍攝作出總結。
