• Sealed Moments

    My work derives from my own living experience, involving media such as painting, installation, and video. In the piece Momentary Image, I enlarged a number of video screenshots of sensitive movements and states of women, and gave them painting-like color blocks by image processing. These movements and states include the lower body of a woman as she is undressing in bed, a touching hand, a sensitive foot, and an ambiguous face of a woman with her back toward a man.  I hope to make these movements and scenes a moment filled with a sense of painting, and magnify the instantaneous wonderful feeling.

    My work derives from my own living experience, involving media such as painting, installation, and video. In the piece Momentary Image, I enlarged a number of video screenshots of sensitive movements and states of women, and gave them painting-like color blocks by image processing. These movements and states include the lower body of a woman as she is undressing in bed, a touching hand, a sensitive foot, and an ambiguous face of a woman with her back toward a man. I hope to make these movements and scenes a moment filled with a sense of painting, and magnify the instantaneous wonderful feeling. At the same time, the focus is in the movements themselves and the meaning they convey. What I try to reveal and demonstrate is the sense of female self-consciousness amidst social development and revolution, women’s sensibilities and control of their own behavior, their will, their change, as well as changes in social moral values and changes in individual experiences carried by a single action in a certain social context.
