Liu Chuang was born in Hubei in 1978 and is currently living and working in Shanghai.
Liu graduated from the Hubei Institute of Fine Arts in 2001. He produces work that integrates social intervention with institutional critique to examine immediate social realities. Working across disciplines including video, installation, architecture, and performance, Liu uses banal readymades and intervention techniques with a subtle sensibility and an awareness of absurdity.
Liu’s recent solo exhibitions include Segmented Landscape at the K11 art village, Wuhan (2015); Untitled (The Dancing Partner) at Kunsthall Stavanger (2014); Love Story at Salon 94, New York (2014); and Liu Chuang: Works #16-21 at LEO XU PROJECTS, Shanghai (2012). His work has been exhibited extensively in China and other countries, at group exhibitions including Tutorials—Moving Images and a User’s Guide from China at the Pino Pascali Foundation Museum, Polignano a Mare (2016); Bentu, Chinese Artists in a Time of Turbulence and Transformation at Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris (2016); the 66th Berlin International Film Festival; and the 10th Shanghai Biennale.
