This artist cultivates the irrationality of human behaviour in the face of situations that are beyond us. Between a cultural egalitarianism and a nascent individualism, man is capable of the worst as well as the best. Li Wei is the performer of the impossible. The head embedded in a mirror, the body suspended in the void, this is what this astonishing artist who pushes illusion beyond reality proposes.


In 2006, he was one of 31 photographers who received an award for "the best photographic creations in the world" from the Getty Institute in the United States.
