Liu Di is one of the most exciting Chinese artists working today. His famous Animal Regulation series was the collection that propelled him to international attention. In this highly original series Liu uses digitally manipulated photographs to investigate the friction between the natural world and urban worlds. They feature a suite of exaggeratedly large and cartoon-like wild animals, like the giant rabbit in Animal Regulation No. 7, sittingin the midst of sprawling landscapes of residential neighbourhoods. They make a deft and charming environmental point.
