MadArt Studio proudly presents Each and Every, an installation and performance by Austin-based artist Beili Liu. Through her practice, Liu subjects commonplace materials to unorthodox processes, extrapolating complex cultural narratives around the trauma associated with migration and diaspora. In her first major Seattle exhibition, she creates an expanse of hundreds of articles of children’s clothing, flattened and preserved by industrial cement and suspended just inches above the ground by thousands of lines of thread. Additional tension are added through dichotomies within her materials and concepts: lightness and heft, malleability and firmness, fragility and strength.

This installation is Liu’s direct response to the atrocities inflicted on migrant children and their families at the southern border crossing of the United States. As the title and work  suggest, Each and Every calls attention back to the individual experiences of these children and their families, generating space for empathy and understanding. Liu also incorporates several performances into her Open Studio period, using the repetitive acts of cutting down and resewing cloth to explore cultural ideas of feminine labor. These performances will take place alongside her physical installation, July 9 – 11 (details above).
