Liu’s artistic practice is conceptually driven and uses a range of different media,
which include video, performance and photography. Her works are frequently
expressed as narratives in silence, in the simplicity of a process, and in the repetition
of a single action.
Liu’s work focuses on the themes of the fears, anxieties, genders and social codes in
the art world. Her work could be viewed as mildly subversive. Liu has reflected
conceptually on the individual identity in relation to the cultural and political context.
There is an abstract and childish appearance comparing the serious and complex
nature of the subject. Liu’s body frequently appears in her video and performance
works as a found material, but carrying meaning.
Zejing Liu was born in China in 1988 and was educated in London at the Chelsea
College of Art and Design from 2011-2013, where she studied for a BA in Fine Art.
She graduated in 2015 from the Royal College of Art, London with an MA in
Photography (Performance pathway).
Her live performances have been presented at Internal 6 in Essen, Germany, in
2015, at Performance Platform Lublin at the Galeria Labirynt, Poland in 2014, at the
Bristol Biennial, UK 2014, and also at the Friction International Performance Festival
in Uppsala, Sweden.
