LIU JIANHUA

Using porcelain, a very traditional medium, Liu Jianhua addresses very contemporary phenomena—namely, China’s unbridled urbanization and its role as the “factory floor” of the world. Liu, who is based in Shanghai, has become well known for his scantily clad headless porcelain figures, which he often serves up on decorative plates. “Ceramics have a profound cultural connotation,” he says. “The fulfilling of material desires can never match our human spiritual world.”
