Liu Fujie 刘符洁

To create her sculptures, Liu Fujie combines accumulations of diverse materials such as wire, wood, and tape, often binding them together with plaster. Her sculptures convey the relationship among the body, bone, and brokenness. Although her sculptures take many shapes, they always seem to exist comfortably in the vulnerable forms she sources from the realm of the unconscious. In this way, these fragile forms present immutable, transcendent elements.

Liu Fujie was born in Hebei Province, China, in 1983; she currently lives and works in Beijing. She received an MFA in Sculpture from the Central Academy of Fine Arts in 2013. Her recent exhibitions includes By chance, Telescope, Beijing, (2017); A Composite Leviathan, Luhring Augustine Bushwick, New York (2019); Final Del Juego, HongKun Museum of Fine Art, Beijing (2018); Infinite Rehearsal, Mo Cube, Beijing (2017); and As a Blue Sign, Qi Mu space, Beijing (2017).
