Liu Shiyuan: Isolated Above, Connected Down
Feb 22-Apr 07
The exhibition introduces Liu Shiyuan's latest major works, including a large-scale video installation in the first floor gallery, a series of six photography works in the second floor main gallery and a felt-carpeted room installation in the project space. Together these pieces demonstrate Liu's core visual vocabulary--which references that of the cyber and the vernacular--and embody her inquiry into the relationship between mass culture, language, identity, and particularly the misconception, miscommunication and hybridization of meaning and discourse.
