Pixy Liao’s Photography Flips Traditional Gender Roles
Artist, Shanghai

Every year the world moves away from the gender gap, and the associated roles. With Women’s March or #metoo, things seem to finally start moving in a new direction and with the French Vogue featuring a transgender model for the first time ever or Tinder introducing dozens of new gender options, the old gender perception starts to peel off.
Also, China-bred Pixy Liao is disrupting the gender cliches and flips traditional roles applied to men and women in her ongoing “Experimental Relationship” series. While being brought up being told to marry a man to support her, to become mother and wife, the project challenges ideas about what makes a relationship work – and Pixie and her 5 years younger partner are the stories main actors.
