Description: Thread, paper, incense, wood, salt, water - these simple materials and compounds are the vehicles by which multidisciplinary artist Beili Liu handcrafts microcosms of fragility and poignancy.
Beili Liu is a multidisciplinary artist whose time-and process-based installations explore subjects of cultural specificity and overlaps, transient or persistent energy, and conflicting and confluent forces. By working with everyday materials, Liu manipulates their intrinsic and bare qualities to extrapolate much more complex cultural narratives. Liu has exhibited extensively both nationally and internationally. She has held solo exhibitions at venues such as the Hå Gamle Prestegard, Norwegian National Art and Culture Center, Galerie An Der Pinakothek Der Moderne, Munich, Germany, Elisabeth de Brabant Art Center, Shanghai, Hua Gallery, London, UK, Nordisk Kunst Plattform, Brusand, Norway, the Chinese Culture Foundation, San Francisco, and Buffalo Arts Studio. Liu has been included in group exhibitions at the National Museum for Women in the Arts, Washington, DC, Museum of Art and History, Santa Cruz, the Austin Museum of Art, Art Museum of Southeast Texas, Urban Institute of Contemporary Art, Granary Gallery, Fiskars, Finland, the Kaunas Biennale, Lithuania, From Lausanne to Beijing, the 7th International Textile Biennale, China, and Hamburg Art Week, Germany.
