Lives and Works: Beijing
Liu Jian was born in 1982 in Harbin. IN 2010 he graduated from the Department of Oil Painting in the Central Academy of Fine Art. He currently lives and works in Beijing.
"The extended works and the evidences of Liu’s labor are supplements to bring the audience closer to the structure of the exhibition and the process of Liu’s art making. And they reveal to the audience Liu’s way of thinking in his art making process and the connections grew between the artist and matter during an elaborated time of labor. No word from other people can better describe Liu’s art practice and inner-transformation than his own statement: “My artistic practice is indeed a history of failures. Its pricelessness comes from my acknowledgement of my failures and my effort of making use of them. The one that had been eliminated was actually myself, but not the materials.”
