John Silica Liong

John Silicia Liong cuts and interlaces a variety of form, creating intimate and poetic constructions. Examining fragments of epistemology and hermeneutics, she reveals the mutilation of translation and the simulation of language systems. Whilst in intention creatively different, the artist harks back to the notion of the ‘cut-up’ created by Beat-era writer Brion Gysion and exploited to brilliant effect by William S. Borroughs. Indonesian-born, Silica Liong graduated from RMIT University with a bachelor degree in Fine Art (Drawing) in 2011, and has shown two bodies of work: Connecting the Dots  and I Put My Hope in Your Word both at Red Gallery in Fitzroy in 2012.
