Solo Exhibition ShanghART M50, Shanghai

Artists: LIU Yue 刘月

Duration: 2022/6/21 – 9/10 (Tue. - Sat. 11:00-18:00, Mon. & Sun. Closed)
Location: ShanghART M50, Bldg. 16, 50 Moganshan Rd., Putuo District, Shanghai

Liu Yue's solo exhibition "Origins" is the first exhibition project of ShanghART M50 Space in 2022. Since June 21, Liu Yue has been presenting the creation process of his works to the public, and after July 9, the exhibition will enter a new phase: the completed "Origins" will be presented to everyone. The whole project is planned as a cognitive study process about "time", and the four works in the exhibition hall are spanning different dimensions in two spaces.

The project purpose: Freeze the flow of time

The Project Processes:
1) Weaving the rope into a net: during the weaving process, constantly increasing the lengths between the knots to enlarge meshes form a two-dimensional giant net spread out from top to bottom of the wall;
2) Randomly roll the spheres of various sizes along with the highest point of the rope net. Different mesh traps will catch these objects according to their different sizes and masses;
3) Mixed fluids (cement, gypsum, flour) with strong solidification force are dumped from the highest point. They flow downward along the track of the rope grid and are blocked by the spheres occluded by the rope grid to change the flow track;
4) The marks of fluid droplets on the ground form a spectacle that records the movement of the whole time.

The Final Presentation:
1) The mesh bearing the sphere -- the space-time shaped condenses an integral time imprint;
2) Collapsed wall -- a "moment" when two-dimensional space meets three-dimensional space.

Two-dimensional form of the project:
1) Photography 1 - Spiraling wire - Three-dimensional trajectories simulating four-dimensional space-time form solidify in the image and presents in two-dimensional history;
2) Photography 2 - Three-dimensional objects with chaotic logical relations under a Two-dimensional plane freeze-frame.

About the Artist

Liu Yue (b. 1981) was born and currently resides in Shanghai. Liu Yue's works often take objective things as the starting point, through the extreme intervention of cognitive experience, making the process of in-depth research have a strong sense of agnosticism and the unknown. In this kind of clue which is always parasitized by the cognitive limitation, the objective subject of cognition will also form a strong anti-materiality with a paradoxical logic. It makes people curious to observe the connection between the whole context and the concrete things in the cognitive process with the potential of falsification. Under those limiting extrapolations, the cognition creates "cracks" in itself. This process of extracting and purifying "impurities" from the essence of things is exactly what Liu Yue is extremely obsessed with.

Liu Yue was nominated for the Art Sanya Huayu Youth Award in 2017, and nominated for the Jimei Arles Discovery Award in 2021.
