Concept
From the series “Our God is Great” Liu Xi’s gilded ceramic sculptures hang with their particular floral and vulval forms in full view of the spectator. The complex labial plies and clitoral hoods, show the stunning diversity and beauty of the female anatomy. Additionally, Liu Xi emphatically refers to women, evoking female genitalia, in such a bold attempt to expose the tempting and daring sexual side of femininity. What's more the collection of works must be considered in the the context of the #metoo movement. In the wake of this powerful international movement, LiuXi excelled, highlighting the power of women's awareness and the full spectrum of their femininity, allowing them to address their needs, desires and, ultimately, their rights in a very honest and open-minded way.
