The scene is a gruesome one; a vicious creature with demonic red eyes and sharp claws eagerly laps at a gradually spreading pool of blood. Our gaze follows the trail of blood to the mangled corpse of a poor, defenseless carrot. Breathing a sigh of relief, the viewer quickly realizes that what was initially mistaken for blood is merely carrot juice and the bloodthirsty beast is just an albino bunny innocently enjoying its favorite snack. This mischievous visual duplicity typifies Lili's style and tiptoes playfully on the edge between lighthearted humor and foreboding dread. Her simultaneously cute and creepy animal subjects leave us questioning the difference and relationship between these two extremes.

A word from The Artist

The works are quite simple, but deciphering them is perhaps a bit complicated. I’m interested in why we love, hate, and always feel unsatisfied. I want to use narrative to describe the relationship between man and man, man and the environment, man and himself—thus creating a space brimming with contradiction, constraint and release.
