An Te Liu | NEW LIFE 

23.05.18 - 16.06.18

MARSO | Division Gallery

Opening Wednesday May 23, 2018

An Te Liu’s work is situated in the matrices of timelessness, knowledge and memory. Simultaneously referencing languages of modernist art and ancient artifacts, the bronze sculptures presented in this exhibition challenge how we perceive culture, value and time in physical form. 

 

The forms are carvings, mutations, and amalgamations that originate from humble origins such as packaging and found objects. Liu challenges perceptions around material culture—as both a system and product—while revealing the fine line which separates an artifact from an object which has simply outlived its importance. As an ensemble, these works compel us to consider how ways of seeing and knowing shape our relationship to objects, across civilizations and epochs.

 

An Te Liu (1967) was born in Taiwan and educated in Toronto and Los Angeles. His work has been exhibited in venues including the the Witte de With Center for Con- temporary Art, the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Ursula Blickle Stiftung, the EVA International Biennial of Ireland, the Venice Biennale of Architecture, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Liu’s works are included in the permanent collections of The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The Art Institute of Chicago, the National Gallery of Canada and The Art Gallery of Ontario. An Te Liu is represented by Galerie Division (Montreal and Toronto) and Anat Ebgi  Gallery (Los Angeles)
