Yin-Ju Chen will present Extrastellar Evaluation, a project which continues her research into dystopia, conspiracy theory and art history, through the mythological land of Lemuria and its inhabitants.


After the sinking of the pre-Atlantean mythical land of Lemuria, some Lemurians returned to their planets, the Pleiades and Sirius, but others remained on Earth. Studying humans for centuries, they have been collecting information on human societies, and report back to their fellows in space. In the 1960’s, they disguised themselves as artists. To make their message simple and quick to understand, they initiated an art movement called “conceptual art,” and then they started to construct “artworks” with minimal aesthetic but with complicated message systems.

In Liverpool exhibition environments will be presented based on these fictional sci-fi stories mingled with conspiracy theories, and the art movement of Conceptualism in the 1960’s and the 1970’s – Donald Judd and Robert Smithson, amongst others.
