Céline Liu: I’M EVERYWHERE
14. September 2018 - 31. Oktober 2018
Silin Liu assumes the identity of her alter ego Céline Liu to travel through time and space: Partying with Diana Spencer, conversing with Simone de Beauvoir, protesting alongside Martin Luther King — iconic personalities and moments in history are cast in a new light by the ever-present persona of the artist. Each image is the result of a meticulous week-long process that places charismatic Céline into the familiar settings of our cultural memory. Rewriting history in her own image, Silin Liu ponders the role of photography in the era of cultural globalisation, the irrational worship of icons and our understanding of images as vehicles of historical storytelling.
Silin Liu, a.k.a. Céline Liu, is a conceptual artist habitually crossing the boundaries of photography and digital art, while also exploring installation and performance. On view at Koppenplatz 5 will be Liu’s award-winning series I’M EVERYWHERE as well as works from her most recent series APPME, and an installation of the video-project SIRENS (for a sneak peek: https://www.instagram.com/p/BcowSragnQP/?taken-by=mo_industries_worldwide).
