Selfie Series
Mixed media

Stimulated by the pop culture of taking selfies, Liu combines photography, painting, and found objects to reflect on the shifting boundaries between individual and society. The commonplace elements, such as keyboards, embroideries, acupuncture needles, and bullet cases, are suggestive of the overwhelming information and traditional cultures that surround her. While external influences are internalized and translated into her behaviors, her body is simultaneously a battleground where she constantly seeks to reconstruct her own identity just like everyone else does.
