IVY LIU/PREMIER FOUNDATION
Chien-Chi Chang: I Do, I Do, I Do
Essay by Cheryl Lai. Foreword by Sarina Yeh.
These Taiwanese wedding pictures are not the celebratory nuptial norm that are the bread and butter of photographers everywhere, but rather a jaundiced look at the institution and the industry of marriage. A couple is caught in a net of spray-string confetti; a bride poses among ruin; a chain of wedding couples kisses in a zoo with caged elephants behind them; and a post-nuptial couple, in all their Western finery, sleep soundly, and separately, in the back of a limousine. I Do, I Do, I Do reveals conflicts that the artist, a 41-year-old unwed man with three younger sisters and no brothers, feels about the notion of mariage and all the traditional family pressures that it entails.
