Pixy Liao - Experimental Relationship, Vol. 1.1


This book is mainly a collection of photos from Experimental Relationship project from 2007 to 2017. As a woman brought up in China, Pixy Liao used to think she could only love someone who is older and more mature than her, who can be her protector and mentor. Then she met her current boyfriend, Moro. Since he is 5 years younger than her, Pixy felt that the whole concept of relationships changed, all the way around. She became the person who has more authority & power. One of her male friends even questioned how she could choose a boyfriend the way a man would choose a girlfriend. And she thought, “Damn right! That’s exactly what I’m doing, & why not?!”

Pixy started seriously thinking about the significance of this relationship and experimenting with photographs. Her photos explore the alternative possibilities of heterosexual relationships. Moro made her realize that heterosexual relationship doesn’t need to be standardized. Depending on the individuals, every two people will have a different type of relationship. Even if the relationship is not the type we are familiar with, it still exists and has its own benefits. The purpose of this experiment is to break the inherent relationship model and reach a new equilibrium. Because Moro is Japanese, and Pixy is Chinese, this project also describes a love-hate relationship. She plans to continue this project as long as they are together. She hopes this is the first collection of photos of several to follow.


This book is published by Jiazazhi in March 2021.

这本书主要是收集了从2007年到2017年的《实验关系》项目的照片。作为在中国成长的女性,Pixy Liao曾经认为她只能爱一个比自己年长、更成熟的人,他可以成为她的保护者和导师。然后她遇到了她现在的男朋友Moro。由于他比她小5岁,Pixy感觉整个关系的概念都改变了,完全颠倒过来了。她成了那个拥有更多权威和力量的人。甚至她的一个男性朋友都质疑她为什么会像男人选择女友一样选择男友。她想,“完全正确!这正是我正在做的,为什么不呢?!”Pixy开始认真思考这种关系的意义,并通过摄影进行实验。她的照片探索了异性恋关系的替代可能性。Moro让她意识到,异性恋关系不需要标准化。根据个体的不同,每对人都会有不同类型的关系。即使关系不是我们熟悉的类型,它仍然存在并有其自身的好处。这个实验的目的是打破固有的关系模式,达到新的平衡。因为Moro是日本人,而Pixy是中国人,所以这个项目也描述了一种爱恨交织的关系。她计划只要他们在一起,就会继续这个项目。她希望这是随后几本照片集的第一本。
