About the artist

Pixy Liao’s photographic relationship with her partner, Moro, began when they were all but strangers. Through an ever-expanding collection of semi-fictional, semi-autobiographical portraits, we bear witness to the couples’ changing relationship over time, though one thing remains fixed: Pixy holds the dominant role and Moro follows lead.

“Both Moro and I currently live in the United States, which serves as a catalyst to this formula. Living here has given us the freedom to do what we want without the pressure or strains of our own countries. In the US, we are always seen as Asians – as ‘others’. It liberates us; it’s always OK to be ourselves, to be different.”
Pixy Liao

“As I think about ways to keep our relationship healthy and lively, I’m thinking of photographic ideas. In my opinion, a good relationship should be happy and light-hearted. That’s why I always aim to have fun while photographing, and when I look back at them, they make me feel content.”

New York, USA

In 2005, Pixy Liao (1979, China) moved to Memphis from China to study photography. Among her many photographed subjects is her partner, Moro, who is the subject of her most well known project, Experimental Relationship. Over the course of their relationship, Pixy has photographed Moro, as well as herself with Moro, in scenarios that oscillate from performative to autobiographical, probing at traditional gender roles and power dynamics along the way.
