Guangli Liu

Guangli Liu (刘广隶) was born in 1990 in Lengshuijiang, China. He currently lives and works in Paris. He graduated from Le Fresnoy – Studio national des arts contemporains in 2020. Liu’s works often grow out of different approaches to depicting history and events, and eventually find their own places in installations, videos, documentaries, and paintings that suggest that our understanding of the present is often shaped by pre-existing languages, social norms, and media formats. In 2021, he won the Golden Nica in Ars Electronica’s Computer Animation category, and the Golden Key for Best Short Film at Kassel Dokfest.
