Walled Island


When you take a walk along the Suzhou Creek and turn onto Moganshan Road in search of an island, but you find nothing more than old industrial buildings and graffiti walls with no gate, don’t be surprised. But don’t be afraid. Workers from every regions of China that grew up here have moved to the surrounding hundred stories high residential complexes as rattling constructions replaced the clamor of the Fou Foong Flour Mill. The warehouses have gradually been occupied by artists from all over China and beyond, but there is a place in the shadows of skyscrapers that nobody has dared to pull down. Climb up to the top of the wall to get a better perspective. You will see an empty field of memories behind. A place that retains a fragment of the past. One building still standing immured, timeless and untouched. Watch your step. You have to keep your balance. If you fall down, where exactly are you going to land? And who is going to drag you back to the reality of the present?.

The spirit and purpose behind all Liu Dao artworks, literary contributions, and exhibitions is collaboration. The group places emphasis on interaction in order to engage artists, curators and technicians in the process of creating and experiencing art focusing on collective rather than individual values, with the direct aim of benefiting a young Chinese contemporary art scene promotionally and creatively.
An appealing comparison is to the film industry: the island6 gallery acts as the producer for the artists (actors), curators (film directors), while utilising the skills of cameramen, set designers, choreographers, scenographers, and writers. The digital artworks produced by island6 also use postproduction editors, such as Affect Effect experts or sound designers. Each artwork and exhibition has a cast with credits for people of different skills.
