Li Wei's works are made by using mirrors, metal wires and scaffolding. His performances defy gravity and are an iconic illustration of the feeling of freedom in an increasingly open society. His images are a breathe of fresh air that tells us with humour and optimism that thing is impossible in the world. The book includes Li Wei's latest performances in France and Bejing and is the most up-to-date mograph of his works. One of Li Wei's photographs was selected as one of the Associated Press Photo of the Year 2012.
