Liu Yefu

Liu Yefu (b. 1986, Liaoning, China; lives and works in Beijing, China, and New York, U.S.A.) is an artist whose works are influenced by pop culture and folk art, and he uses video art, installation and mixed media to playfully flirt with the chaos and unrest of the real world. Through the appropriation of everyday scenes, ready-made products and cheap materials, Liu presents the ideologies and stereotypes contained in history, national memory, and personal experience. Liu’s major solo exhibitions include No Easy Symbolism, Magician Space, Beijing, China (2018) and Episode 1, Magician Space, Beijing, China (2016). Major group exhibitions have been held in China, USA, and France, including Performing Society: The Violence of Gender, Tai Kwun Contemporary, Hong Kong, China (2019); Shards from the Mirror of History, Gene Siskel Film Center, Chicago, USA (2019); and VIDEOBOX, Le Carreau du Temple, Paris, France (2017).
