“New Landscapes” - Yao Lu at Istanbul Modern

By Cornucopia TR | February 2, 2011

2YLU-00008-SP

(Yao Lu, Early Spring on lake Dong Ting, 2008) Until 22 May, Istanbul Modern will be displaying 31 works by Chinese photographer Yao Lu, including 11 created exclusively for this exhibition. These images are at first almost indistinguishable from classical Chinese landscape paintings, but on closer inspection it quickly becomes obvious that these scenes are far from bucolic ideals. Rather, they are formed from piles of rubbish and rubble, covered in nets; pagodas, people, boats and trees have been digitally added. Although these images were created with China's rapid urbanisation and the associated damage to the environment, they also have some relevance to Turkey, and especially Istanbul. Perhaps those behind the third Bosphorus bridge ought to see this? Meclis-i Mebusan Ave. Liman İşletmeleri, Sahası Antrepo No:4 Karaköy
