Photo Exhibition of Half-Shade by Chia Yu Lee

The Oriental Museum, Moscow has opened the exhibition Half-Shade. Photo Images by Chia Yu Lee.

      The State Museum of Oriental Arts for the first time addresses the modern art of Taiwan, and introduces Moscow public to Chia Yu Lee, one of the most demanded pictorialists of the Pacific Island.

      The Half-Shade series appeared thanks to a parable by the legendary philosopher Chuang Tzu. Following the the Chinese wise man, the artist asks the eternal question of the essence of life.

      Chia Yu Lee used an unusual technique for creating the Half-Shade series: he put the film on a desktop in a dark room. He put an object on the film and lit it with a flash. Thus, the object shadow was captured on the film. This is how the author got this half-shade or “the shadow of a shadow”, as he puts it.

      The exhibition will be held till April 8.
