OWL_The exhibition view of The Exhibition of Annual of Contemporary Art of China, Beijing Minsheng Art Museum, Beijing
Liu Yue's works intend to dispel all the specific concepts and meanings attached to the objective world. He is interested in the innermost part of everything and studies its microscopic parts. He peels off the external attachments and dissolves everything to explore the most authentic parts, like an infant not yet influenced by the collective ideology. For him, art is actually an experiment to observe and analyse human and social cognition.
