a photograph by crystal liu from her exhibit that will open in new york on the 10th of april.
“i wanted to make this photo of wallpaper. before i moved into the room someone else lived there and made their own memories there. a house is a kind of storage space… just like someone’s journal. or brain. or heart. or a box of recipes.
the wall paper is about someone discovering something. so many questions are racing through my mind… i wonder who lived in this room? why beige stripes? it’s like when people go to the desert and dig for bones… it’s to piece together a more complete past. i want the whole answer…”
