Liam Young’s films are the result of a deep research in which design, the study of futures and the creation of powerful audiovisual narratives converge. Stories filmed with laser scanners, autonomous drones and other digital techniques that captivate the viewer by the power of the images, and that come from his close collaboration with prestigious experts, scientists and technologists.
Liam Young. Building Worlds brings together the artist’s most outstanding works in the form of large video installations -works such as Planet City, In the Robot Skies and Where The City Can’t See-, and presents two newly produced pieces created expressly for the exhibition. The projections are shown alongside models, photographs, costumes and other materials with which Young has constructed his powerful stories. Fictions that make visible the threats of the present and that are, at the same time, a powerful source of inspiration to set in motion the mechanisms with which to tackle them.
