Born in Kumamoto, Kyushu, Japan, Liao now lives and works in New Taipei City as an artist and art researcher.
Excelling at using ordinary, versatile, yet volatile media to create art, Liao alters the forms and properties of the chosen media to deliver unmeasurable, subtle changes in them. She uses mixed media installations to present the mysteries behind things, while adopting a micro perspective to look at existence and delivering her observations through photography,videos, and mixed media installations.
This time, Liao is going to present a dozen works including large-scale installations, videos,and sculptures in her solo exhibition. Aside from visual stimuli, her works are also rich in sound, smell, and tactile sensations, allowing users to explore the space — which is sometimes broad yet sometimes narrow, sometimes bright and sometimes dark,sometimes in motion and sometimes static — with their bodies. The architectural structure points to the top, provoking feelings and leading viewers into an infinite space constructed by the artist. It’s metaphysical yet figurative at the same time.
