The Chinese performer of camouflage photography arrives in Milan
From the spires of Milan Cathedral to the shelves of a supermarket, passing through the Colosseo. The world-famous Chinese artist Liu Bolin, known to the general public for his camouflage performances, arrives at Mudec with the exhibition “Liu Bolin, visible invisible.”
Liu Bolin adopts the poetics of hiding to become a thing among things, to declare that all places, all objects, even the smallest, have a soul that characterizes them and allows us to camouflage, vanish, identify with everything.
About fifty of the artist’s works are on display, including a new shot with the Rondanini Pietà taken at the Sforza Castle in Milan and the photograph of the Sala di Caravaggio – never exhibited before – taken in 2019 at Galleria Borghese in Rome, as well as the picture taken at MUDEC among the exhibits of the museum’s permanent collection.
