2 artworks / 2 exhibition

Jawshing Arthur Liou works with photography, video, and electronic imaging to create video installations depicting mental and surreal spaces. The videos do not contain a clear narrative but rather are meditative in nature, allowing time to slow to a ruminative pace, while spatial scales oscillate between the microcosmic and infinitely expansive. Using sources ranging from landscapes to oil paint to the human body, much of Liou’s work is related to Buddhist concepts of impermanence, meditations on nature and spirituality, and coping with the illness of his daughter.

Liou’s videos and prints are featured in exhibitions and collections in the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Indianapolis Museum of Art, Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago, and Seoul Museum of Art. Liou is the recipient of Asian Cultural Council Grant, New York, Efroymson Contemporary Arts Fellowship, Indianapolis, and Garry B. Fritz Award from the Society for Photographic Education National Conference, Chicago. International presentations of his work include the New Media Caucus Showcase, College Art Association National Conference, SIGGRAPH conference, European Biennial Conference of the Society for Science, Literature, and the Arts, and Chicago Humanities Festival at the Art Institute of Chicago. Liou is currently a Professor of Digital Art and the Director of School of Fine Arts at Indiana University, Bloomington, U.S.

Kora
Aaron Travers, Melody Eötvös (sound composer) Description:Many consider Mount Kailash the most sacred mountain in Asia. Four religions - Buddhism, Hinduism, Bön, and Jainism – worship this remote mountain, located 900 miles west of Lhasa, as the center of the spiritual realm. For thousands of years Hindu pilgrims and Tibetans have revered the Himalayas as an embodiment of the divine; the presence of the lone towering Kailash peak is the ultimate seal of this sanctity. Pilgrims believe ...

Sonnet 27
Melody Eötvös (sound composer) Description:Our individual presence seems trivial in the scope of the landscape's grandeur. And yet, our mind (or brain) never ceases to amaze us with its infinite complexity, expansiveness, and mystery. Through imagination, memory, and dreams, we are capable of conjuring up images of past and future, and of views tens of thousands of miles away. Perhaps because of such potential and the desire to utilize it, ancient humans subjected themselves to various ...
