Gloria Houng is a MFA 2012 candidate in Fine Arts at Goldsmiths, University of London. The submitted artworks are photographic documentations of framed and reframed moments that straddle the narrative and performative. Many are photographs of photographs, some are not. Narratively, they ambiguously encompass events that are perhaps part-travelogue, part-autobiographical. Performatively, they are caught between willful actions and contextual reactions.
The show is a reflection of Liu Bolin's multifaceted and complex view of contemporary society and culture. The critically acclaimed and internationally renowned artist will release the first works of a new series, Hiding in California.
