Manikin #85-1, 1985, Silkscreen
The manikin’s series was first created when Liao traveled in Pairs in 1983. Industrialization provided a mechanical world. People were living in a pre-set, systematic, and less flexible life. Liao used manikin to analogize the people in this era, possessively accepting family and love, which was an irony implied by Liao.
