Liv Schulman’s films hijack television codes to engage in a biting analysis of traditional representations of gender and identity. Far from locking herself into scholarly postures, the artist prefers to play with irony and the absurd in order to better undermine all the clichés.
For her solo exhibition at Frac Bretagne, Liv Schulman has chosen to present the two seasons of her television series Brown, Yellow, White and Dead, 2020 and Brown, Yellow, White and Dead Dead, 2022. The public is invited to sit in a sculptural environment to watch the episodes broadcast alternately on either side of the space.
