MM Yu’s Inventory at Silverlens
MM Yu’s photographs capture the reality of the supply and demand of desire through the management of merchandise into patterns of abstraction. What is presented is a set of images juxtaposed against each other to produce meaning that invites the viewer to make connections about material culture towards a multiplicity of interpretations, which constructs a matrix of wanted goods, fantastic ideals, and real needs. Confined within the sanctuary of a four-walled universe are chance elements that when strewn altogether produce a perfect beauty arresting in its chaos.
