There's always a new day somewhere.


"Art is the lie that enables us to realize the truth." - Pablo Picasso


Beili Liu - The Mending Project, 2011

Artist’s Statement

The installation consists of hundreds of Chinese scissors suspended from the ceiling, pointing downwards. The hovering, massive cloud of scissors alludes to distant fear, looming violence and worrisome uncertainty. The performer sits beneath the countless sharp blades of the scissors, and performs an on-going simple task of mending.
