Private Project

Breathe With Me (For HiShorts!)


For the construction of the infrastructure for the residents of Sorry crisps, the 2000 Ton City designed by super studio in 1971 has become a reality. Here there is only a continuation of a single building, consisting of square nesting rooms. Each unit is equipped with technology capable of meeting all human needs and physical demands. Ceiling screens are pressed down with 2000 tons of gravity until they are completely airtight with the floor. The material body and space no longer exist, and life is filled only with virtual screens and highly dense media messages. A real tactile sensation in the age of existing objects is replaced by a visually dominated illusion. At the same time, the extraordinary stimulation of the screen amplifies the inhabitants' desire for the high purity of colour that is almost non-existent in nature.

Qingqing Liu (b.1995) is a Chinese visual artist who currently based in London. She graduated from the MA Contemporary Art Practice at the Royal College of Art in 2021. Her works ranges across mediums including film, party, text, performance and installation. She enjoys playing with and create surreal scenes, influenced by neon-scifi, strange flora. As a result of her curiosity about animism, “the form of beings themselves” is a constant theme in her work. She likes to celebrate the joy of being born out of the darkness. Her current practice is set in “Sorry Crisps - Crystal Palace”, a supernormal stimulating world of science fiction, where she fantasizes about the tender sweetness and extreme cruelty of feminist environments. She is also committed to exploring the transcendental material that gives illusion in everything, whether in the physical and virtual worlds.
