From June 29 to September 20, 2020, Sim Chi Yin's "Shifting Sands" will be featured at Les Rencontres de la Photographie d'Arles in an exhibition titled Infrastructure: Revealed by Collapse.

"Shifting Sands", part of the Pulitzer Center-supported project, "The Deadly Global War for Sand", is Sim Chi Yin's ongoing visual investigation into the global depletion of sand. 

The exhibition explores the cultural, political, and spatial natures of infrastructure. Featured projects investigate the relationship between the tangible and physical components of railways, water distribution, or communication systems along with their intrinsic, political, and social values.

Organized and presented together, the featured projects have the capacity to unveil structures of power and the social constructions that lie dormant under the powerful infrastructures of today and tomorrow.

The exhibition is part of an annual summer photography festival founded in 1970 by Arles photographer Lucien Clergue, writer Michel Tournier and historian Jean-Maurice Rouquette.

The gallery will be open everyday between 10 am and 7:30 pm.
