Yes, I love you 是的,我爱你

Exhibition by Linyao Kiki Liu 刘麟瑶

Date: Nov, 2 - Dec 2, 2018
Location: I: project space

Yes, I love you is an intimate exhibition talking about belonging, trust, loss and love.

The declaration of love immediately forms a bond between Linyao Kiki Liu and the viewer and draws everyone into her inner dialogue. Her dogs as symbols of trust, loyalty and unconditional love, are becoming subjects of Liu’s snapshots of life. It is vulnerable proposition to take a microscopic look at the universe that she creates and to dissect, what really holds meaning in life.

Her first solo show is not only a sensitive glimpse into Liu’s life, but also her outing as an artist. The series Yes, I love you is all about the presence beneath the representation. Ultimately this exhibition is using the subjective power of painting as the ultimate expression. Deleuze sought to defend the truth of painting on the grounds of its immediate, and hence unmanipulable, corporeality. Liu’s paintings are a naked portrayal of the ones closest to her. Unmanipulated tenderness exposed in her use of brush strokes and color. Her repetition of the same subjects lets the viewer leave the rather intimate proclamation made and look at the how. The radical subjectivity of Liu’s work is claiming a programmatic objectivity.

About the artist:

She received her BA fromthe Art and Art History Department at De Pauw University in Indiana, USA. Kiki works mainly in Painting and Installation, where she draws attention on everyday life-subjects. In her exhibition Yes, I Love You, she explores the acrylic medium and engages with some of the most intimate subjects of her life. Kiki is currently living and working in Beijing, China.

是的,我爱你 是一个讲述信任、丧失、爱情与归属感的亲密的展览。

画中对爱的宣告立即在画家和观众之间形成一份牵绊,把人们引入画家内心的对话。狗作为信任、忠诚、和无条件爱的象征成为了刘麟瑶对生活刻画的主体。观众需要放下伪装和自我保护才能细看和剖析她所创造的这个世界和其意义。

刘麟瑶的第一次个展不仅仅是对她生活的一瞥,更是她自己艺术家身份的揭示。是的,我爱你 描述的是象征之下的存在。最终,这个展览意在用绘画的主观力量作为最根本的表达。德勒兹寻找到的辩护绘画的真理在于其因为无法扭曲和操控的直接性的物理存在。刘麟瑶的画就是一种裸露对她最亲近世界的描绘。真诚的柔情展现在她的一笔一画中。对同一对象的多次描述又引导观众关注到绘画具体表述的手法中。刘麟瑶别具主观性的作品如此成为一种客观的存在。
