Liu Xiaodong: BordersLiu Xiaodong: Borders

Published by Mousse Publishing.
Text by Peter Doroshenko.

For eight weeks, Chinese painter Liu Xiaodong (born 1962) embedded himself within Mexico–US border communities such as Ciudad Juárez, El Paso, Eagle Pass, Piedras Negras, Laredo and Nuevo Laredo, to capture the lives and trials of the people living there. A leading figure of Chinese Neo-Realism, Liu, in loose brushstrokes, paints everything from border agents on both sides carrying out their duties to Mexican families barbecuing on the banks of the Rio Grande. Also included in this clothbound volume are Liu’s reference photographs of these border communities; studies based on those photographs showing how he builds his compositions; and pages of his notes taken throughout his lengthy journey. Peter Doroshenko, director of the Dallas Contemporary, writes in an essay for the book: “every painting captures a decisive moment, locking individual narratives down forever, reflecting numerous cultural references that echo throughout his practice.”

Liu Xiaodong: Weight of InsomniaLiu Xiaodong: Weight of Insomnia

Published by Lisson Gallery.
Introduction by Zhang Ga. Text by James Bridle, Liu Xiaodong. Interview by Karen Archey.

Since 2015, Chinese painter Liu Xiaodong (born 1963) has been developing a technologically radical project to create landscape paintings using robotic arms and surveillance cameras. Collectively entitled Weight of Insomnia, this series of paintings is an attempt to quantify the emotional burden carried by people moving through the seemingly ceaseless surroundings of the 24-hour city. Taking live feeds, streaming data and imagery from specific locations, Liu’s painting machine processes these real-time images of the ever-changing flow of humanity into a complex network of abstract marks on canvas, resulting in a machine-manufactured painting.

This book is the first to publish the full extent of this project through its iterations in China, Germany, the UK and Australia. The volume also includes an interview with the artist as well as Liu’s diaries written during the project’s gestation, installation shots and working documents.

Liu Xiaodong: Painting From LifeLiu Xiaodong: Painting From Life

Published by Blue Kingfisher.
Text by Ai Weiwei, Pi Li.

This volume is the most comprehensive look at Beijing-based painter Liu Xiaodong, who was born in 1963, to date. Articles, interviews and essays are accompanied by high quality, fold-out reproductions of his most significant pieces in this beautifully-designed volume. As the title suggests, Liu paints from life--drawing from the rich history of the practice in Chinese art. Eschewing any sense of romanticism about his subjects, Liu approaches his fusion of landscape painting and portraiture pragmatically. "Eighteen Soldiers Between Mainland and Taiwan" (2004), for example, is a horizontal painting segmented into eight sections, each of which contains a full-body portrait of a soldier staring impassively at the viewer or into the distance; each stands against a different background: a horizon of sea and sky, tanks and bunkers, trees and barbed wire. Included are texts by artist Ai Weiwei and curator Pi Li.

Liu Xiaodong: The Richness of LifeLiu Xiaodong: The Richness of Life

The Personal Photographs of Contemporary Chinese Artist Lu Xiadong.

Published by Blue Kingfisher.
Edited and with interviews by Britta Erickson, Ai Weiwei. Introduction by Charles Merewether.

In this collection of photographs, Liu Xiadong, one of China's most celebrated artists, reveals to us the inspiration behind many of his most iconic paintings. An album consisting of personal photographs taken between the years 1984 and 2006, these are the images that have stayed with Liu, inspiring and informing his art throughout the past two decades. Deeply personal and politically engaged, The Richness of Life reveals for the first time the great extent to which Liu's paintings borrow from the discipline of photography, making his art the final product of a complex project involving interviews, photos, sketches and analyses, with little to do with easel painting. Essays from leading scholars illuminate the actively rebuilt nature of Liu's work, while in-depth interviews provide Liu's own perspective on the process and passions involved in his painting.
