Mountain Blossom

Take an object from everyday life--the quilt--and add one of the symbols of Chinese pictorial tradition--the mountain--mix together and you will get improbable photographs, such as the ones created by Liu Yue (born in 1981 in Shanghai). In Mountain Blossom (2007), Liu does not content himself with a mere distorted vision of a utilitarian object. In fact, his multi-coloured and floral patterned quilts symbolize not only his childhood but also the Mao era when they first appeared and gradually became more colourful. These photographs are full of humour and sensibility while evoking collective and personal memory.
