FOR THE LAST DECADE, ARTIST AND COLLECTOR THOMAS SAUVIN RECOVERED DISCARDED NEGATIVES FROM A RECYCLING PLANT OUTSIDE BEIJING: “His Beijing Silvermine archive, one of the largest archival projects in China, now encompasses over 850000 anonymous photographs spanning the period from 1985 to 2005, thus allowing the reconstruction of a large part of the history of popular analogue photography in the country. This unceasingly evolving archive provides a visual platform for cross-cultural interactions, while impacting on our collective memory of the recent past.”
