Li Wei is a Chinese artist whose work is a mixture of performance art and photography that creates illusions of a sometimes dangerous reality. Li provides action and illusion in works that combine the use of mirrors, acrobatics, metal wires and scaffolding, not to mention a heavy dose of stamina. Previous works have been studies on falling head first into a variety of surfaces and one that involved only his head and a young girl. Li Wei’s current collection features more excitement, hopefully more the result of smoke and mirrors rather than nerve and strength .
