All The World’s A Stage 人生如戏
By Liu Yan
14 January – 29 February 2012 (Reception: 13 January 2012)
This exhibition, the first for Liu Yan in Singapore, shall feature a number of her outstanding and excellent work. Liu Yan is one of China's most established and respected female artists. She is presently an Associate Professor at The Fine Arts College of Beijing's Capital Normal University. Her works centre on the intrinsic theatricality of life. Using symbols and iconography from Peking opera and drawing from life and memory, this series of works explores both the dichotomy and overlap between ideals and reality and the duality of dreaming – the artist's hopes and ideals, as well as the subconscious world of dreams.
