Hailing Liu (b.1997, Shenzhen, China) is a mixed-media artist, an animator and a motion graphic designer working and living in Chicago. They employ diverse media in their art practice: 2D and 3D animation, video composition, writing, sculpture, printing, Augmented Reality , physical and virtual installation.
Focusing on digital culture, images and media representations in contemporary life, Liu researches cultural meanings of imageries and symbols produced as visual communication in capital systems. Based on these research, Liu’s work plays with these designs and ideas behind them, subverting and recreating them as their way to respond to social-political changes (especially those in Chinese society). The expression of their work is always humorous, dark, absurd and ambiguous, with the structures that are in between reality and imagination.
