poster for Tokyographie: Liu Bolin

This event has ended.

Liu Bolin (b. 1973, Shandong, China) is known in contemporary Chinese art circles as an ‘invisible man’ who body-paints himself into his urban surroundings. For his latest work, done in collaboration with the world’s oldest maison de champagne, Ruinart, Liu camouflaged not only himself but also the local staff working at Ruinart’s World Heritage chalk champagne cellars and vineyards, literally embodying the complex and unseen processes behind the famous brand’s history and savoir-faire, and hinting at both the grandeur of nature and the invisible demarcations between self and others.

*This exhibition is part of the Tokyographie – Kyotographie Special Edition featuring ten programs at six Tokyo venues. Please see the official website for details.
