JEN LIU
The Last Four Seasons
15 October – 19 November 2005
Opening: Saturday 15 Oct. 17.00 – 19.30

Jen Liu examines the contemporary cultural and political frontier through its collision with old and new pop models - music, icons, pop history, computer and print graphics. What results are seemingly imaginary worlds, in which meaning is intensified through allegory, hidden motivations revealed through mass media aesthetics.
