The Tale of Chair

September 2, 2014

Black and White Photography
2004
Size: 210 x 300 mm
Private collection, Oliovitali, Italy

This piece consists of 10 photos. A series of chairs from the last century were shot using the same angle. In old China people used to sit together to talk and share their lives. These chairs played an important role and are symbols of their exsistence. We are constantly losing this kind of space, time and mood to share. The chairs are not preserved very much in China nowadays, and are rarely used. Their function was not only to hold people bodies but to hold the orginal owners’ lives.
