Liao Wen (b. 1994, China) currently lives and works in Shenzhen, China. She graduated from the printmaking department of Sichuan Fine Arts Institute in 2016, and received a Master's degree in Experimental Art from the Central Academy of Fine Arts China in 2019.


Rooted in her daily body perception, Liao Wen's artistic practice expands across sculpture, performance and video, and explores variations of emotion within the body through vivid sculptural language. Her experience of making marionettes in her early career inspired a fresh perspective on sculpture. By reproducing body parts and organs, Liao Wen awakens body perception through reconstruction of pain. Her recent work focuses on the theme of "the body in rituals", externalizing the state of mind and body suspended at a critical point of conflict in a temporarily stable structure.
