Established Taiwanese artist Jui-Chung Yao selected from a bulk amount of his unpublished black and white photographs taken in the last twenty years, collaborating with independent publishing house Waterfall for the photo book Something Blue. 50 photographs are included in this book, whose bookbinding design, made of artificial leather, is inspired by the vintage photo album. Included in the second part of the book are excerpts from his notebooks, which give readers a glimpse to the artist’s own personal fleeting memories. The sense of loss and evanescence within the missing pages and chapters, on the other hand, is palpable and resonates with those who share similar life experiences.
From 14th September to 20th October, 35 pieces of the original hand-printed photographs will be exhibited at TKG+ Projects, a brand new project space of TKG+. More than 20 notebooks of the artist’s hand notes and diaries will also be presented on site. There will be an open reception from 4:30 pm on 14 September.
藝術家姚瑞中集結二十年來從未發表之黑白攝影作品，與獨立出版品牌Waterfall合作，推出自傳色彩濃厚的攝影集《小幻影》。全書收錄50幅作品，以 舊式相冊為裝幀設計的靈感，外覆塑膠皮料，並從姚瑞中數目龐大的扎記本中，挑選出數張內頁重新印刷。讀者捧在手上的，不僅僅是該位藝術家的流年記事，也同 屬於我們這一代人所失落的篇章，持續亡佚、流竄。
