Artist Liu Bolin is painted by an assistant, as part of a project to make himself and other participants look exactly the same as the seats in a theatre, in Beijing, September 12, 2013. Liu, the Chinese artist known as “the invisible man” for using painted-on camouflage to blend into the backdrops of his photographs, has done it again by making himself and other participants “disappear” into the red seats of a Beijing theatre. Called “Red Theatre”, the latest project is Liu’s third to make a group vanish and one of more than 100 “invisible works” he has completed since 2005. Liu covered a similar “red chair” topic in 2010 at Milan’s La Scala opera house, but said he also wanted to do it in China. Picture taken on September 12, 2013.
