Liu Wei (b.1972, China)

One of the most intriguing and active young generation artists working in China today, Liu Wei (b. China 1972) explores his ideas in a multitude of media: from performance, sculpture, photography, video and installation, to painting. Liu Wei has been interested in what it is that gives shape and form to the environment around us. While earlier works engage with and make use of particular cultural, social and political ideas, his recent series of works focuses on his relationship with the material and objects that constitute our world, seeking to “get rid of simple materials, and realize more of the value within the matter itself,” as can be seen in the “branding” of found concrete blocks, discarded appliances, and everyday items with the stamp “Property of L.W.”
