Birdhead – Shanghai Artist Duo

December 19, 2012 at 1:00 pm ,

Birdhead (Ji Weiyu and Song Tao) is a photography duo whose mainly black-and-white snapshots of everyday Shanghai and its people skyrocketed them to unexpected art-stardom in the early 2000s. Commonly described as “stream of consciousness photography”, their work focuses on the unsung, ephemeral aspects of daily life. Birdhead’s prolific, compulsive documentation of their friends and surroundings has led them to exhibit internationally, including a part in a current show at MoMA NYC. We sat down with Song Tao and Ji Weiyu to talk about collaboration and priorities amidst the onset of fame.
