Mei-Ling Liu collects local packing and recycled materials to express her internal and external changing thinking patterns related to, on the one hand, the material link with the surrounding environment and landscape, and on the other hand with the spiritual link to the present.
Using the concept of movable type, Mei-Ling cuts the recycled material into the desired size to create new images. Mei-Ling hopes the viewers will relate their lives to past and present experiences, and become more aware of their surrounding environment.
Mei-Ling's recent solo exhibitions include “Observing Power,” Cultural Affairs Bureau of Pingtung County, Taiwan (2015); “Ming-Qian-The sensible humility,” Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, Taipei (2014); “Induction of Daily Life,” 8 & 1/2 Art Space, TNUA, Taipei (2014).
