Doll House: Sidian Liu’s Solo Exhibition
Banshan Lin Gallery
, Chengdu, China 

The reality may not bend to my will, but the world of imagery does. Manipulating images is my way of folding space and constructing narratives, all to build my safety house in the world of photos.

Doll House includes two of my works: At Home with My Family, and a three-channel video installation Stealing Light. Both of them were made in my living space. They are personal, confined, and shy. In a world and time that I don’t always feel belonged, I can always turn to the realm of images to be the owner, the dominator, the monarch, and the ruler.

玩具屋:刘思典个展

四川省成都市锦江区干槐树街11号半山·林Gallery

现实或许不尽人意,但影像世界任我做主。通过操控影像,我在摄影世界里折叠空间,搭建叙事,筑造自己的安全屋。

“玩具屋”收录了《与家人在家》和《偷光》,这两个作品都是我在住所内部折腾影像玩出来的,很私人,很安全,也很胆怯。在这茫茫世间,总有迷茫流离,不知何处为家的时刻。但在照片的世界里,关上房门,我做自己的家主,我做自己的君王。
