Based in Shangai, the artist duo Birdhead was formed in 2014 by the artists Song Tao and Ji Weiyu, who started a partnership because of their shared passion for collecting film cameras and taking photos in the street. The collective's artistic practice not only combines collage, traditional Chinese calligraphy and singular mounting techniques, but dives into deep aspects of the philosophy of photography. Birdhead makes use of overlaid grids of photographs, subverting and playing with the snapshot-like aesthetics.
