Leaky Logic and a Fugitive Fish is an outcome of a fruitful collaboration between Chinese photographer Ke Peng and Korean-American photographer Justine Chang, both currently based in the USA.
Project Leaky Logic and a Fugitive Fish presents the urban expansion and the life of an immigrant. The title of the project refers to the quick temporal nature of memory, resembling a darting fish in a bowl of water. For the series, Ke went back to cities, where she spent first years of her life.
She visited Hunan, the city where she was born and also went to Shenzen, where she grew up. The project is her personal observation of the similarities in two individual places bonded in her memories.
Meanwhile, Justine photographs along the East Coast of United States, pointing to small details that rupture the constraints of the suburban immigrant home. She preserves a sense of play in the midst of loss — as in the face of frequent moves, or a winter flood, where the burst of thawing pipes drenched everything she owned.
