Haohui Liu

His work focuses on photographs and visual computer
programs, discussing and documenting “spectacle” (the definition of “spectacle” is derived from Guy Debord’s “The Society of the Spectacle”) and the impact of commodity fetishism, consumerism, and globalisation on the mental and physical behaviour of people.

To cut the feet, to fit the shoes’ is a Chinese idiom used to describe the unprincipled accommodation of existing conditions.

As a photographer, the act of beautifying’ portraiture triggered me to start this project to offer resistance to the appearance anxiety rendered by the mass media and commodity fetishism, and to encourage us to let go of harsh self-recrimination and accept our own identity and uniqueness.

During the making of the project, people of different backgrounds are invited to “beautify” the faces of Haohui Liu and Jiaoyan Yang. The project is based on the decontextualisation and recontextualisation of those beautifications.
