Medium: Photography Installation

Material: Inkejet Prints, photo frames, tinted dark glass.

Exhibition:

2013 Shiyuan Liu solo exhibition - The Edge of Vision, or the Edge of the Earth, White Space Beijing. China.

A Conversation With Photography takes Kitsch images as its medium to inquire the canons of photographic

presentation. The work consists of three framed black mirrors and a wall covered with decorative flower

patterns. For the wall, the artist collects images via Google search engine with negative keywords such as

“discusting flowers”, “vulgar flowers”, “rotten flowers”, et cetera, to mock stereotypical ideas of “beauty”

on the internet. The framed black mirrors with frames diliberatly blended in with the wall channel undeveloped

films, inviting the audience to consider pre-existing principles of art in the transition between the two and

the three dimensions.
