Reggy (Tong) Liu (b.1992, Haerbin, China) working and living in-between London and Shanghai. Reggy is a mix media artist. Liu’s work is about ‘Masquerade’ issue combining art, psychology and neuropsychology, revealing the intangible emotions in-between spiritual and reality world. Reggy’s research navigates her own communication experience, and merges the differences in between oriental and western cultures. Her performance explores the human condition and the concept of the ‘mask’. Adopting performance combined with painting, Liu explores the human condition in the contemporary world and the dichotomy of authenticity and fiction, involving the audience into an internal self journey and experience. Liu challenges her weakness, fears and uncertainties, in order to explore the transformation of her subconsciousness through the passage of time.
