Li Ran: Beyond Silence

New York, 29 June – 6 August 2022

Li Ran: Beyond Silence

Lisson Gallery is pleased to present the debut of works by Shanghai-based, multimedia artist Li Ran. Beyond Silence is the gallery’s first solo presentation with Li Ran, following the recent announcement of worldwide representation. While the artist has gained renown for his performances and pseudo-documentaries, his practice also encompasses painting, installation and writing. His work explores the history of art, using mimicry and satire to question the role of the institutions and narratives that define it. In recent years, Li Ran has been surveying antagonist roles in theatre, stage art, make-up design and the production of foreign and espionage films created in China since the 1950s. He uses painting to present the transformations associated with character scene posing and voiceover monologues.
