Liu Silin 刘思麟 (born in 1990) creates through herself a character, Celine Liu, who traverses history, culture, politics, and identity, yet says that Celine Liu is in fact nobody: Celine Liu can be anyone, while anyone can be Celine Liu. In this era of image overload, Celine Liu employs herself as a medium to push the boundaries between the real and the fictional, the mundane and the ritual, the private and the public, the individual and the universal, allowing the character of Celine Liu to be circulated and fermented in the virtual world of the Internet, as well as to be "consumed."
In "Appme", she creates a series of hybrid self-portraits of Celine Liu by using a selfie app to place herself in a template of portraits, depicting people from various decades and identities of the 20th century. Meanwhile, she adds her own templates to the app, handing over Celine Liu to the audience in the pool of characters where the performance of the audience merges with Celine Liu's image.
