About Beijing Overshoot by Editions Bessard

So, Beijing Overshoot by Claudia Jaguaribe is the result of a residency in Beijing in partnership with the Rosewood Hotel organized by Editions Bessard. In this residency, Claudia had the opportunity to work with Chinese people and to enter the heart of Chinese society and participate and present her work in conferences in the Three Shadows Photography Art Center in Beijing.

The book can be described as a magical, poetical personal perspective on issues relevant to contemporary China such as past and present overlapping, the artificial and the natural coexisting in a very particular way, the extreme pollution and daily life in Beijing.

The book is conceived in colour chapters where images printed on tracing paper overlap other images creating new images in an extremely original design.

About Beijing Overshoot by Editions Bessard

“Beijing Overshoot is about the images, perceptions, and feelings I had in China that were and continue to be recurrent long after my trips ended in 2015 and 2016. I felt that China and in Beijing in particular condensed and amplified some important and pressing issues for me.

Many things seemed to be bordering the limit of their possibility. Such a constant transformation brought multiple changes in lifestyle. (…)

Day and night are no longer easily distinguishable because pollution creates a veil that envelops the city and the intensity of artificial lights of differing origins and shapes brighten the night.”

– Claudia Jaguaribe
