The Zhou B Art Center is pleased to present the solo exhibition “Subconscious Plot” by emerging Chinese photographer Lakita. This exhibition comes directly from China to debut in US in the spacious second floor gallery of the Zhou B Art Center. To discover the process of individual consciousness, Lakita’s work embodies a reflection of her participation in society. The simple elements of her creations, as seen from the characters and backgrounds, are also her state of mind’s presence and absence in society. Lakita’s unique personal vision which fusions fine art and fashion photography provides the viewer with an insight into the subconscious elements of our post modern life experience. Even though Lakita employs beauty as her language for creation and connects her love for life, it is through her interaction with humanity that she chooses to stray away from the face value of its contents. Using the photographic medium as a tool for awareness, Lakita digs and processes the scenes from the abstract mind, exploring ways to control the uncontrollable thoughts.
Lakita, a fashion photographic artist, is considered the first in advocating the Fashion Art Photography Concept in China. While still in school, Lakita won numerous awards such as Academy Awards(China) and Times Awards(Taiwan). During her career, Lakita worked with a number of renowned magazines including Harper’s Bazaar, Esquire, Rob’s report, Vision, Modern Weekly, Lifestyle, Hotspot, Elegance, Grace, Fashion Weekly, Milk, 1626 and 0086. She has held 4 individual photography exhibitions in Beijing 798 art zone (2008), Shenzhen OCAT (2009), St. Petersburg (2010), and TaikooHui Guangzhou (2013), and was invited to attend the fourth international photography exhibition in Lianzhou, China in 2008. In 2011, she was invited to attend “Dig The New breed” fashion exhibition in London. In 2013, Lakita collaborated with South African street artist Faith47 in Art Basel Miami Beach exhibition.
Lakita was praised by the magazine Milk(Hongkong) as one of the most pioneer young female photographers in China; she was also praised by the professional design magazine 360 concept and design as the only female cutting-edge and creative photographer.
