About

Acclaimed Chinese artist Liu Bolin presents a new series of photographs, The Distance the Eyes. The project sees Liu modify images from institutional websites - Sophal, UNESCO World Heritage site Völklingen Ironworks, etc - in his signature style. That means employing an army of assistants to effectively 'camouflage' the artist inside the picture. The works, Liu explains, seek to shed light on our current global reality - an idea that translates literally in the series by the presence of a lamp in each and every photograph.
