ShanghART Beijing is pleased to present Liang Yue’s solo exhibition Intermittent on 5th March, 2016. It's Liang Yue's first solo exhibition in ShanghART Beijing. This exhibition will display 13 pieces of video works and three groups of photographs. In the space, audiences will find two interacted clues: one is intermittency and the other one is fleeting of life. These two clues constitute a power field of shadow, image and sound. The exhibition will last until 7th April, 2016.
In this exhibition, seemingly quiet videos and photographs present the artist’s sensitivity about living creatures and images of vitality, capturing live and energetic activities. Insects around the big tree at dusk, baby fishes in sparkling river in spring, epiphyllum painfully but beautifully blossoming in silence and so on, all show the aesthetics of the artist’s video works and photographs: seemingly static images are always full of vigor and viability.
Video language is extremely limited in Liang’s video works. The artist constantly simplifies and refines her artistic creation. In recent practice, Liang develops her exhibition languages. Through setting the video works in specific space, the artist creates connections between visual and meanings among works. Therefore, in this show, Liang accomplishes in setting up a kind of constellation exhibition languages rather than merely the specific video installation or exhibition. The artist always waits and hunts her elements in the nature and human environment without attention, purpose and publicity, thereby accomplishing the significance of video and waiting and declaring her attitude of the world and art.
