Imagine if Miss Disneyland and a vodka laden Russian Tycoon had a love child in a China city…
Manzhouli has cultured its own mish-mash urban identity with kitschy architectural samples from the Classical, Baroque and Gothic built in chinese practicality and washed with bright fresh paint from the unconventional range. The highway from the airport are flanked by stand alone architectural spaceships parked in open fields. These individual pieces house hotels, commercial shopping, government buildings and sport centres. It is perfectly acceptable in Manzhouli to build a Matroyska-inspired park and another one dedicated to the retirement of propaganda statues to make the Russians feel perfectly at home.

For her series “Set the house in Order“, Katie Breckon meticulously documents objects from her former family home, things she’s leaving behind to let them rest in the sphere of memory. The life-sized photographs of family belongings build the personal archive of an intimate story, an archaeology of the recent past where every sign of time, scratches and marks, is carefully documented on the surface of everyday objects.
“Once I have documented these things, then I feel like it is okay for me to let them go and allow change to happen.”
