La galerie de la Biennale
In connection with his project with the Yah collective, on show on the ground floor at La Sucrière, Liu Qingyuan is also showing a series of posters using traditional Chinese images filtered through his own brand of irony. The collision between the venerability of the woodcut technique and its sheer effectiveness – blanks hollowed out, simplicity of line, absence of unnecessary detail, self-evident character of the message – gives rise to a fresh link between an intentionally traditional visual repertoire and the contemporary advertising images that constantly assault us. Rechannelling the situation ever so slightly via an exquisite printing technique, Liu Qingyuan conveys at once the tone of the messages and their utter vacuity.
