Forget Japan is the latest art project by Shang Liang.
By detaching, deconstructing, reorganizing, and mixing the three parts of photography, newspaper scan, and Google street view screenshots from their respective contexts, a set of narrative methods belonging to these images themselves is established to try to experience any aspect of time and space, with the ambiguity of virtual and reality.
All the images about Japan, that he believed to be his own, have slowly constructed a dreamland where the audience could escape from real life.
It may also make you forget something or remember something, even if none of us can choose what to forget or remember.
This will be a game of forgetting and remembering.
