Item description for Liu Jin by Jun Wei...

This comprehensive new monograph on the emerging Chinese Conceptualist, Liu Jin, features work from 1995 to the present. Most of the work touches, in some way or another, on human cruelty, especially when interfacing with youth culture from the 1970s and onward. There are strangely touching naturalistic studies of young men and women in their own environments, doctored official documents, staged exercises in cross-dressing, graphic nude bondage photographs, and, most compelling of all, restaged photographs of our culture's most classic and brutal photojournalistic moments, particularly from the Vietnam "conflict." The book closes out with the Liu Jin's most recent work, haunting photographs of partially clothed, and sometimes bleeding, "angels" in degraded landscape settings, and performance pieces in which the artist challenges consumer culture in sometimes humiliating, sometimes hilarious settings.

Reviews - What do customers think about Liu Jin?

Liu Jin, an extraordinary look into modern China  Sep 13, 2008
Liu Jin's work is an extraordinary look into modern China, Chinese youth culture, and modern history. He often begins with performance of a specific time and place, moved into this modern moment, of Chinese modern history. These performances, captured or enacted for photography, are arresting, beautiful and poignant.

This book will not only give you new perspectives on China, it is also an interesting study of the use of materials and the importance of setting for any artist/director/designer/professor.
