Liu Shiyuan’s work probes the causes and results of gaps in communication that arise from changing technologies as well as from transcultural exchanges. Through images in videos, collaged photography, and other mixed media work, she interrogates in-between spaces of a global existence mediated by technology where intimacy and secrecy can be scarce.

Criticism is often misunderstood as a form of combat – the writer against their subject. The 2022 Art Writing Incubator will focus on how considered, measured criticism can be an act of communion between artists and critics.
