Photography and sculpture by Chinese Australian artist Liu Xiao Xian
One of the most compelling contemporary Chinese Australian artists, Liu Xiao Xian explores the nuances between East and West with playfulness and wit, revealing some profound differences as well as shared concerns and values. Born in China and raised during the Cultural Revolution, Liu Xiao Xian left Beijing for Sydney after the Tiananmen Square Massacre. On this twentieth anniversary of Tiananmen, RMIT Gallery is focusing on his photographs and sculptures which explore the subtleties of his diasporic experiences.
