artist statement

My art practice is about my experience in the city inspired by feelings and emotions of living.  I observe the society as a drifter from within to see the chaotic world from a quiet corner.

I believe the society and humanity inter-transform each other, my works endeavour to investigate the social phenomenon and its relation to humanity, and to arouse discussion about the issue.  I intent to create works that act as catalysts for thoughts which induce or regenerate perspectives.  Besides the visual language, I explore different approaches to formulate artworks to provide unique experiences; the relationship of my works with the space and the voluntary or involuntary participation of audiences are crucial.

我的藝術創作源自對生活的感受,是我在城市裡的體驗。日常我是沈默的觀察者,從安靜的角落細看他人、觀看混亂的世界。

嘗試以作品探討社會現象與人性相互牽引、影響的關係,我希望作品能作為催化劑,誘發或重新大眾對事物的想法和觀點。 除了運用視覺語言,我探索不同的方法以創造提供體驗性的作品;對我以言,作品與觀眾、空間的關係,和觀眾的參與都同樣重要。
