Part 2 The Crawling Man
Mostly known for his photographs from the series "Hiding in the City", a work he initiated in 2005, we often forgot that Liu Bolin is also a sculptor. Born in 1973 in Shandong, a province in eastern China, in the south of Beijing, he first obtained a degree in sculpture at the University of Fine Arts of Shandong. He then taught this art for nearly four years, before undertaking two further years on studies at the Institute of Fine Arts in China. The exhibition returns to this type of work exhibiting the latest sculptures of the artist. Now internationally recognized as one of the leading figures of the contemporary Chinese art scene thanks to his photographic "camouflage" around different cities of the world, Liu Bolin proves with these pieces that art of concealment can also find is place in his sculptural work."The man goes blind in the world, he can’t see clear. He hides himself many things, and we hide him things too." Liu Bolin.
