The recording of the live Instagram broadcast on Saturday, 3/28 at 2pm New York time of a virtual walk-through of my current solo show, Liminality Liminoid, at Multispace NYC in Manhattan’s Chinatown, in conversation with Serena Tabacchi, curator at MoCDA, Museum of Contemporary Digital Art (@MoCDA_).
Fu’s artworks are set within a corridor, where Plato’s allegory of the cave is revisited through contemporary New Media Imaging technologies.
The word liminal is often used in the discussion of the sublime within digital space and the VR experience, relating to occupying a position at, or on both sides of, a boundary or threshold, conjuring up notions of time, space, and perception. The word is however borrowed from the field of anthropology, in which the liminal, as the anthropologist Victor Turner stated, “is the quality of ambiguity or disorientation that occurs in the middle stage of a rite of passage, when participants no longer hold their pre-ritual status but have not yet begun the transition to the status they will hold when the rite is complete.”
Turner concluded that liminality "serves not only to identify the importance of in-between periods, but also to understand the human reactions to liminal experiences...and the sometimes dramatic tying together of thought and experience.”
