Annette An-Jen Liu is an emerging artist and curator currently based in Canberra, Australia. She holds a double Bachelors in Arts (International Communications, Anthropology) and Visual Arts (Photography & New Media Arts) from the Australian National University and will be commencing Honours in 2018 for Visual Arts in Photography & New Media Arts.
Growing up as a Taiwanese diplomat’s daughter and inspired by her degree in anthropology, Liu is fascinated with the Chinese diasporic experiences. Her work addresses the complexities of culture - its flux, development, influence and exercise that inform and shape collective, national identities. Liu ultimately seek to visually represent and interpret observations to make sense of social intricacies and highlight various juxtapositions that regularly occur.
