‘Relationships work best when each partner knows their proper place’ … Pixy Liao, aka Yijun Liao, is exemplary of a new generation of photographic artists experimenting with the possibilities of portraiture in depicting modern partnership. Her works emerge from personal experiences and her own intimate spaces, challenging conventional socio-cultural ideas of gender constructions and questions of nationality in a globalized world.
‘Your Gaze Belongs to Me’ is part of an ongoing, long-term project entitled ‘Experimental Relationship’. The project began when Liao, a Shanghai native, met a Japanese musician in 2006 while studying at university in Tennessee. This first solo exhibition of Pixy Liao’s work on display in a museum is arranged thematically and includes more than 50 works from two series, ‘Experimental Relationship’ and the outgrowth series ‘For Your Eyes Only’ as well as individual video and sculptural works which Liao is showing together for the first time.
