Summarization of Content

Monograph published on the occasion of Liu Ding's solo exhibition, 'Liu Ding's Thinking: Between Small Gardens and Small Marketplaces' at the Primo Marella Gallery, Milan, Italy, November 2009. 

The exhibition was a selection of the artist's recent works representative of several directions that his thinking has taken in this period and the  manifestation of Liu's impulse to come to a new understanding of the relationship between himself and his environment. Small gardens and small marketplaces refer to two concrete concepts, but what he relies upon is the intentions and ambience that these two kinds of environments carry. Small gardens refers to the surface of memories , whereas small marketplace refers to this modern and time and place from which we cannot extricate ourselves.
