Liu Yue, born in 1981, is a Shanghai-based artist. He explores the realm of objective subjects in his works, employing a profound intervention of cognitive experiences. This approach infuses his research process with a sense of agnosticism and the unknown. Liu Yue's works challenge cognitive limitations by creating a paradoxical logic, resulting in a strong anti-materiality between the subject of cognition and the contextual clues. This paradoxical relationship generates curiosity among observers as they observe the interplay between the overall context and the specific elements within the cognitive process, with the potential for falsification. Through extreme extrapolations, cracks emerge in the process of cognition, allowing for the extraction and purification of "impurities" from the essence of things—a concept that greatly fascinates Liu Yue.
Liu Yue was nominated for the Art Sanya Huayu Youth Award in 2017 and the Jimei Arles Discovery Award in 2021.
