Liu Weiâ€™s practice is uniquely varied. Working in video, installation, drawing, sculpture, and painting, there is no stylistic tendency which ties his work together. Rather Liu perceives the artistâ€™s function as a responsibility of unmitigated, uncensored expression, tied to neither ideology nor form. Throughout Liuâ€™s work lies an engagement with peripheral identity in the context of wider culture; his works often describe a sentiment of excess, corruption, and aggression reflective of cultural anxiety.
His works have included his Super Structure series of model cityscapes constructed from dog chews; his Purple Air oil paintings of stylised skyscraper cityscapes; his Landscape Series of landscapes made from photographic composites of human buttocks; and Indigestion II, a two-metre model turd.
He has shown work in exhibitions including 21: World Wide Video Festival in Amsterdam, Cinema du Reel at the Pompidou Centre in France, Over One Billion Served at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, and Between Past and Future at the International Center for Photography in New York.
Liu Wei lives and works in Beijing.
