Liao Wen Biography

Rooted in her daily body perception, Liao Wen's artistic practice expands across sculpture, performance and video, and explores variations of emotion within the body through vivid sculptural language. Her experience of making ventriloquist puppets in her early career inspired a fresh perspective on sculpture. By reproducing body parts and organs, Liao Wen awakens body perception through reconstruction of pain. Her recent work focuses on the theme of 'the body in rituals',externalising the state of mind and body suspended at a critical point of conflict in a temporarily stable structure.
