Beijing, 30 July 2012, Art Media Agency (AMA).

Up until 17 August, the Shangyuan Museum, in Beijing, is hosting the solo exhibition “Related to me” of artist Mayu Jiang.

Through a set of photographs of landscapes and individuals and objects in familiar situations, the artist aims a capturing intimacy in her relationships with her loved ones. Jiang stated in the press release that “her relations are particularly sensitive, especially with members of one’s family”. She stated that “it is impossible to break relationships with our family, our lovers”. The sadness and depression expressed by this set of works underline the subtlety of the artist’s relationship with the subject.

Her work shows a traditional oriental taste excluding Western modern and post-modern issues and styles.
