We love this recent artwork titled “Love Stories” by young Chinese artist Liu Chuang. The installation consists of a table stacked with worn copies of Chinese romantic pulp-fiction paperback books that were once part of a lending library. The photos here show the artwork as it appeared as part of the Shanghai-based Leo Xu Projects gallery space at the Frieze Art Fair New York earlier this year. – VC
