Silin Liu (刘思麟) assumes the identity of her alter ego Céline Liu to travel through time and space: Partying with Diana Spencer, conversing with Simone de Beauvoir, protesting alongside Martin Luther King — iconic personalities and moments in history are cast in new light by the ever-present persona of the artist.

Each image is the result of a meticulous week-long process that places charismatic Céline into the familiar settings of our cultural memory. Rewriting history in her own image, Liu ponders the role of photography in the era of cultural globalisation, the irrational worship of icons and our understanding of images as vehicles of historical storytelling.

Silin Liu (b. 1990, Shenyang) is a Chinese concept artist habitually crossing the boundaries of photography and digital art, while also exploring installation and performance. On view at Koppenplatz 5 will be Liu’s infamous I’M EVERYWHERE, for which she received the Jimei x Arles Discovery Award 2016, as well as works from her most recent project APPME, and her video-works SIRENS (click here for a sneak peek). The exhibition at Migrant Bird Space will be Liu’s first solo-show in Germany.
