Liu Bolin, Hide in the city - Paris 04

Date: 2011
Support: Photography
Dimensions: 118 x 150 cm

The “Hiding in the City” series is a profound and sensitive reflection on the human condition. “I do not blend into the background; rather I am taken over by my surroundings”. The artist is not looking for a way to disappear to demonstrate the loss of individual conscience, but is making a statement on the damage to individuals caused by urban economic development – a kind of silent grip where man has lost his ability to adapt.

This photograph was taken during a performance in the vault of Societe Generale’s historical central branch in Paris.
