WHITE SPACE BEIJING is pleased to announce “Agent L”, the first solo exhibition of Liu Xinyi opens on June 23rd, 2012, will present his recent installation and video works in the past two years.
If the task of politicians could be to clean up the chaos phenomena in clue, and thus offer a clear view of the world to us, then, artist perhaps should do something else. For the curiosity to the guiding mechanism of public discourse, Xinyi creates works that focuses on observing political experience in the contemporary condition. His tasks include collecting various forms of political knowledge, mixing their logic, combining peculiar contexts, which aims to have those undoubted facts transformed into new perceptions of seeing the world. His recent projects continue a line of his investigation into political comprehension. With good sense of humor in choosing perspective, the artist explores the ambiguous boundaries in-between consciousness and absurd.
Born in 1982 in Hangzhou, Liu Xinyi had his BA in China Academy of Art, Hangzhou in 2007 and graduated from Goldsmiths College, London with MFA. He currently lives and works in Hangzhou.
