Over six months, and with no knowledge of Chinese language, he travelled to all the different corners of Shanghai, seek-ing out the architectural landmarks ofthe city's breakneck progress since the early 1990's. To him these urban cen-terpieces are the tops of skyscrapers located at the gravitational center pointsof each of Shanghai's rapidly expanding and merging districts. He photographedeach of them from the top of nearby and surrounding skyscrapers. He thenreproduced scaled models of each of these skyscraper crowns in his studio, creating what he calls Monuments for Progress. The entire process, made intoa documentary by the lmmaker Romain Vennekens, will be screened (premiere).
