Liu Yewen – Survival Panic – Germany/China/France/Netherlands/Poland/Portugal
This work uses The Talos Principle as creative material, and cheating mode to pass the level in order to question the nature and limits of human existence. “Cheating” means going beyond the limits, challenging traditional ethics and morals, and making up for the lack of one’s abilities. It involves breaking the rules and trying to remake the rules.
Born in 1995 in Wuxi, China. Currently, Yewen Liu is living and working in France. As a passionate media artist, she has developed an artistic practice around videoart, computer games and digital installations. In her work, she tries to question the place of the digital medium in contemporary narrative and the reconstruction of our collective memory.
