Public Spaces: Liverpool Biennial 2016: Lu Pingyuan Installation
Venue: Epic Hotel
Dates: 09/07/2016 - 16/10/2016
Lu Pingyuan has written a series of stories that can be encountered across episodes, and in the Biennial’s book.
One describes a two-sided lake that a diver uses to swim between continents, and another tells the tale of little Kiki whose origami figure comes to life as a disgruntled artist.
A third, which can be seen painted on the side of the Epic Hotel as part of the Monuments from the Future episode, reveals a dystopian future, where a factory full of Van Gogh clones endlessly produce paintings made from the remains of their unsuccessful colleagues.
Commissioned by Liverpool Biennial and CFCCA.
