When we were young, we all dreamt of interstellar travel. The boundless sparkling seas that were long forgotten – do they still shine for you?


This collaborative exhibition invites the audience onto a cosmic journey. It features Chu’s latest Normal and Abnormal series with shooting stars that lacerate the night skies, an assortment of eccentric plants, and the little girl who wanders through the absurd universe Chu created. The works are her unique interpretation of the dichotomy between fiction and reality, between normality and abnormality. They invite us to cross boundaries and explore limitless possibilities to inspire our imaginations. The exhibition also features her installation piece in collaboration with MOBI GARDEN – by fusing brand and art, the audience enjoy a visual and spiritual feast. In this space, you can soar through the stars to rediscover your childhood wonders. Embark on this heartwarmingly fantastical journey with us and dive into the dreamy celestial seas!

Liane Chu is an emerging artist with an MFA from the Central Academy of Fine Arts (Experimental Art and Technology) in Beijing. Her research focuses on interdisciplinary arts and she experiments with mixed media, including painting, sculpting, and installation art.


Chu subscribes to the concept of simultaneous self-healing and self-liberation - she perceives the world freely and injects her desires and identity into her art. The colours depict her fragmented world filled with her yearning for catharsis. The twitching lines and absurd colours represent the tension between 'the normal' and 'the abnormal' respectively in a Post-impressionist and Surrealist manner.


Chu's artworks inspire audiences to reflect on the forged dichotomy between normality and abnormality. She believes that the existence of abnormality is what manifests creativity as the dissonance adds a sense of unique brilliance. Additionally, her comic-like art style is an homage to our lost innocence as Chu hopes for the audience to live freely and authentically.


Chu's works have been exhibited in prestigious institutions worldwide, including Hong Kong, Paris, London, New York, and Finland. Recent exhibitions include Aurora Museum, Shanghai (2023), SKP-S, Beijing and Xi-an (2023), and Art Central Hong Kong (2024).
