    Beili Liu:

    In an ambitious, large- scale installation, Beili Liu creates an atmosphere of beauty and danger. Suspending hundreds of dagger sharp Chinese scissors from the gallery
    ceiling, Liu immerses viewers in an environment that suggests distant fear and looming violence. The hovering cloud of shears is softened, however, by Liu herself who will sit beneath the countless sharp blades of scissors and perform an on-going simple task of mending. This mended cloth will grow in size throughout the duration of the exhibition, taking over the large area of the floor beneath the scissors. Liu’s
    quiet task of mending moderates the menace the scissors evoke and suggests
    the power of silent persistence in a simple action.

    Opening Reception March 3rd from 6-8pm.
