2011 sz-hk biennale thoughts

Shenzhen photographer, Gu Yun (谷韵) has taken lovingly poetic images of Biennale exhibits. I appreciate these images for their intimacy. The biennale has presented massive projects at a scale that seems analytic and abstract; in contrast, Gu Yun’s images reveal her steps to engage individual works close up and personal, as we sometimes say. Indeed, Gu Yun has me thinking about the revealingly personal work of viewing, digesting, and appropriating objects. Enjoy.

  1. Mary Ann, can you describe or is there a description somewhere of these works? For example what are these? Paintings? Photos? How many? Media? What size?? Is it possible to see individual surfaces from this body of work?
