Cuchifritos Gallery + Project Space and Residency Unlimited are pleased to present Being Here, an exhibition of recent work by Taiwanese artists Meiling Liu and HsiangLu Meng. With each artist working in New York for a brief period of time, the city becomes a central character in their new projects: Being and The Imprints of New York. Both artists continue their investigations of the behavioral and material differences between cultures and, through imprinted compositions of discarded recyclables and porcelain clay cast shoes, create a diaristic interpretation of their intersections with the people and substances that make up a new city. From these observations, Liu and Meng compose new images, stories and connections that allow a sense of familiarity in an unfamiliar space.
