“'Experimental Relationship' flips the image of masculine power on its head, turning the woman into the purveyor of control through poses, gestures and interactions between two parts of a couple, all caught on film. In the photos, Moro (Liao’s boyfriend) can be seen as the submissive party — directed, managed and laid bare (quite literally) by Liao.
