where the city cant see

Liam Young’s solo show New Romance opens in Istanbul.

Liam Young: New Romance is the solo exhibition of an Australian-born architect Liam Young — one of the most distinctive and adventurous voices in contemporary architecture today. At the core of his multidisciplinary practice is a continuous interrogation of the present realities of cities. Through research expeditions, storytelling, documentary film, and performance, Young extrapolates and exaggerates existing networks, systems, and technologies to imagine possible future urbanisms. The exhibition presents three short films — In the Robot Skies (2016)Where the City Can’t See (2016), and the debut of Renderlands (2017) — and charts his recent work in fiction film and his experimentation with new cinematic tools. Each framed as a love story, the films reveal Young’s emerging interest in world building: the design of a cinematic universe in which narratives evolve.
