Ziqian Liu - Exit, 2020 (detail)

Ziqian Liu

January 28, 2021

Ziqian Liu is a Chinese self-portrait photographer whose work combines her body, plants, and mirror images, constantly exploring the balanced state of peaceful coexistence between humans and nature. Her face is intestinally rarely shown because she wants the viewers to imagine that the person in the picture can be anybody. There are two dominant themes in Ziqian's work. The first is about the symbiosis between human beings and nature, while the second is about perspective. She is trying to convey a message that it is possible to disclose different findings by looking at the same thing from different angles. Based in Shanghai, Ziqian Liu graduated from the University of Technology Sydney in 2015 and started her photographic journey in 2018.
