In Pixy Liao’s work, the attitudes and interactions resemble the traces of an erotic role-playing recreation with a wry sense of humor. Partly as a result of the staging, the daring colors, and the apparent twine of the photographic trigger evoke a dialogue between professional and newbie photographs. Partly as a result of the roles in query contradict the representations we're used to.
In her serial work “Experimental Relationship,” which she has been working on since 2007, the Chinese language-born photographer collaborates together with her companion Moro to divert representations of the heterosexual couple and the normal duo of artist and muse. These double self-portraits cross everyday inspiration with inventive, mythological, and cinematographic references, following the couple of their flat as much as in their travels, however all the time by means of fictional stagings, a narrative creation that grows with the couple, with out getting into their actual intimacy. Dealing with us, Pixy Liao’s gaze stares at us by way of the lens, typically gently, typically defiantly, aware of the questions posed by her dominant position, but typically leaving it to her companion to trigger the photograph. Between a parity capturing system and an inverted dominant position, the picture exposes the fashionable configurations of a relationship the place every companion does not likely keep in their place.
Your gaze belongs to me
