Alien Cradleis an exhibition of illustrations and art objects by Xuan Liu and Shuoran Zhou on view April 4 - 9, 2023. Presented by Chinatown Soup.
Alien Cradle explores origination, identity, and longing through shifting landscapes of cultural perspective.
Xuan’s illustrations chronicle a forgotten astronaut traveling through the cosmos as a metaphor for the artist’s personal experience in a foreign country. Floating in the liminal space of unfamiliar geographic and psychic terrain is a pervasive 21st-century phenomenon that precipitates dislocation and loneliness for many. Viewers are invited to consider how isolating circumstances can augment individual agency and complicate the familiar concept of home.
