Swatch is proud to present "Mother River", an extraordinary work of contemporary art by the British-Chinese photographer Yan Wang Preston, a former artist-in-residence of The Swatch Art Peace Hotel. The traveling exhibition premiered earlier this year at the Swatch Pavilion at Arsenale Nord at la Biennale Arte 2015 and is now continuing its journey to Shanghai – at The Swatch Art Peace Hotel.
Yan Wang Preston's Mother River project tells a powerful and moving story. From its source in the Tibetan Plateau the Yangtze River runs through vast and varied landscapes across China to Shanghai. The artist undertook nine separate excursions to photograph her subject in a very particular way: at 100-kilometer intervals across the entire 6,211 km course of the river. The exhibition, which opened September 11, presents a selection of 66 large-format photographs at The Swatch Art Peace Hotel in Shanghai.
