The exhibition’s title is owed to a visit Kozalidis paid to the home of a Chinese classmate in Vancouver, Canada, where he had just moved with his family. There, thousands of boxes of butterflies adorned every room in the house, and a portrait of Mao dominated from high above, creating the impression that he is watching everything that takes place within. That was the beginning of Kozalidis’ relationship of love and respect with the culture and people of China, which lasted for more than thirty years. The photographs that have been carefully selected from a huge volume of work provide an opportunity to meander through the fascinating and full of contrasts world of China.
