Fake Times Replica Watches — Fake A. Lange & Söhne and the company’s Saxon homeland were in the focus of an exhibition by celebrity photographer Pang Xiaowei at the National Art Museum of China in Beijing.
In the summer of 2015, Pang Xiaowei spent an entire month in Saxony. His journey included stopovers at A. Lange & Söhne in the Ore Mountains, in cities such as Dresden, Leipzig and Chemnitz as well as in Saxon Switzerland. With his camera, the Chinese lensman captured unique natural and cultural landscape scenes with their landmark buildings. He repeatedly encountered talented artisans and interesting individuals, spontaneously engaging them in discussions before taking their pictures.
The spotlight of the exhibition spanning 150 photographs is on traditional craftsmanship, for which Saxony is famous the world over. For Pang, it epitomises German culture. He found his themes mainly in the watchmaking ateliers at A. Lange & Söhne, but also in the workshops of instrument makers and flower painters, a Dresden stollen bakery and a sculptor’s studio.
For A. Lange & Söhne, the venue of the exhibition is significant as well. In 2008, the Saxon Replica Watches UK brand had already supported two major show projects in the NAMOC. The intention was to present German art from new perspectives and to pro- mote the cultural dialogue between China and Germany. The first was a retrospective with works by Gerhard Richter, the famous German contemporary artist. It was followed by the Living Landscape exhibition, a pictorial journey through several epochs of German landscape painting. The exhibitions were realised as a cooperative venture with the Dresden State Art Collections which Lange has meanwhile been sponsoring for ten years.
