Form is the Most Political?   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8

Liu Wei at Long March Space September 1st, 2012 - October 7th, 2012
Posted 9/17/12
Long March Space presents a strong body of new works by Liu Wei, which seem to progressively build upon and develop various aspects of this artist’s works. The results suggest monumentality in their occupation of space while retaining an uncertainty in their inability to be defined and interpreted. This opacity of the pieces is apparently mirrored by the reticence of the artist to elaborate on them too specifically. The viewer is offered little aside from some general statements made by Liu and... [more]

With an abrupt reference in its title to a book by Roland Barthes (which appeared in English as Camera Lucida), this show gets underway, presenting works by five Chinese artists each with a relationship to the “phantom” of photography. The artists’ particular approaches to the medium of photography are varied. In this show, Liu Wei is the only artist to include actual photographs, with several examples from his series As Long As I See It, from 2006, on display. These works demonstrate a... [more]

The politics of abstraction tread a very fine line. The style can be considered as a rejection of the illusions of representation in favor of a more direct engagement with perception, material and form; or, it can be perceived to be a rescinding of responsibility from making clearly defined statements. Boers-Li Gallery’s second major group show since decamping to 798, presents a variety of approaches to abstraction by Chinese artists and thereby demonstrates the persisting attraction of the...
