liu bolin: hiding in the city
galerie paris-beijing, paris
on now through to 9th march, 2013

 

 

galerie paris-beijing presents the return of liu bolin with a new series of his camouflage photo-performance images as part of his ‘hiding in the city’ project. the chinese artist perfectly disguises himself to match the surroundings of china and paris – a faint disruption in the image caused by his outline flirts with the visible and invisible. bolin combines a number of techniques to achieve the imagery without the use of photoshop – from sculpture to body art, and from performance to photography, he is able to model for hours without moving to achieve the remarkable trompe l’oeil. if you like what you see, check out more of bolin’s ‘invisible photography’ work here.
