AboutXinyi Liu, a recent Masters graduate from Goldsmiths, creates work that focuses on utilising and transforming various forms of political knowledge into new perceptions of seeing the world. Working mostly in sculpture and installation, Xinyi references historical figures and key political moments in time to visualise his view point.
There are elements of satire and a clear charm to Xinyi's work. His First Step Showcase will continue this line of investigation into politics, creating an installation that focuses on the various 'power nations' in today's world.
He will be bringing everyday objects together within the space, each representing a different country and he will invite the audience to use these objects to physically bring nations together within the display. Expect flags, banners and nations to unite within the space!
