Thomas Liu Le Lann
Born in 1994 in Geneva. Thomas Liu Le Lann lives and works in Geneva, Switzerland.
Thomas Liu Le Lann is an artist who creates sculptures and installations in multiple techniques using fabric, glass, wood, photography, poetry and found objects. His environments evoke his own life experiences through a logic of play, subversion and autofiction. The objects he invokes are reimagined, change scale, materials and frequently encounter “soft heroes”, protagonists with human mannerisms who lasciviously inhabit his exhibitions.
His work has been exhibited internationally, notably at the Fondation Pernod Ricard, Paris; Centre d’Art Contemporain d’Yverdon-les-Bains; Fondation BNP Paribas, Geneva; VIN VIN, Vienna; Galerie Xippas, Paris and Geneva; Maladie d’Amour, Grenoble; LUBOV, New York; Musée des Beaux-Arts, Le Locle; Mikro, Zürich; Extramentale, Arles. Thomas Liu Le Lann is also co-founder of Cherish, a project-space based in Geneva.
