Wellington no.6 – 1994, oil on canvas by Fang Lijun, Wellington, New Zealand 2013

Two swimmers in Wellington Harbour. One in the water, the other on the wall of a gallery at the harbour front. One doing breaststroke, the other backstroke. Both rather clumsily.

I remember when seeing the second swimmer I thought of the first whose picture I just had taken outside. It made me decide to photograph the second as well. My seeing them so close to each other in time and space led me to assume a connection between the two. A characteristic of the mind?
