CottonCandy BubbleGum is an exhibition of color photographs that documents the use of Chairman Mao Zedong’s monumental portrait at Tiananmen Square as a tourist attraction for both Chinese and foreign tourists. But through the selective use of color, Tiananman is seen washed by a sea of pink and blue garments and accessories. The reality of the space dissolves into a fantasy of CottonCandy and BubbleGum colors that, like the backdrop of the Chairman’s portrait, calmly assures its audience of its innocence, gentleness, compassion, and dignity. There is a pilgrimage in motion, day in and day out, and colors are the only terms of engagement. Politics disappears. Tragedies are forgotten. Not a worry in the world.  
Bio:
Casey Carter is an American photographic artist and interdisciplinary researcher. His works seek to extract, represent, and reconstruct the fictions at work in reality – the solitary, the social, the urban, and the geographic imaginations that create and define our identities at all scales. He simultaneously embraces photography as both physical document and mutable fiction.

 

《棉.泡》是一个关于天安门广场上毛像的彩照影展。这幅肖像吸引了大量中外游客。通过对色彩的选择性使用,天安门似被浸染成粉蓝系的海洋。其空间的现实性与棉花糖、泡泡糖的奇幻色彩相融一体,就像毛像的背景,不动声色地向观众保证:它的清白、温柔、爱心和尊严。这是一个日复一日的朝圣运动,而颜色是唯一的参与条件。政治消失了。
