My works often use images and texts as the medium to explore the relationship among human being, society and nature. In the seemingly chaotic status, an artist contemplates and touches on contemporary issues based on sensibility. Because through experiences of bodily movement, desires simultaneously hang between the identity of an artist/ human being as well as human being towards society and nature. This concept involves a complex (ambiguous) identity with human beings/ society/ nature. It is not easily recognized by knowledge but in contrast, it is enclosed in an experiential atmosphere. In the process of reexamining and reconsidering the possibilities of the texts, which then proceed to exploration of collective experience or social issues, in effort to reflect the complex and intricate relationships between power and society.

The Revolutionary Road
The film tells a story about a woman from the city, who travels to the east coast of Taiwan and uncovers controversial land development projects. These development projects exploit the land with disregard to the environment and social community; they sabotage resources and ecological conservation, and defy the rights of indigenous people. The dispute has existed many years and remains unsolvable. It conceals complicated invested interests among government, corporations and local mafia. In the ...

Tuesday Afternoon
The work shows a gathering of several friends from the art scene, three men and three women with an average age of 35 years old, including artists, curators, musicians, PhD students, film directors, and art historians. They gathered at the kitchen table, discussing about controversial topics such as gender and power while eating and drinking. In this experimental approach, a field of discourse is created, a gray and extended area for the discussion of human rights, which also exposes t ...

SOI NANA
This work was done during my residency in Thailand. With the help of local residents, I invited some of the women in the sex industry to participate in the project. I bought a period of their services, and asked them to accept "my interview" and "a karaoke party only for them". It was an attempt to create a "red light district art happening", or in simpler terms, an artistic action achieved through the exchange of money. The karaoke is the location where they usually work, but now it is where ...

THE COAST
This is a double projection video installation with a narrative similar to a confession or indictment, simultaneously voicing the minute but resolute will of the narrator. In the backdrop of the coastal line, nature and avatars of women, the video alludes to the long-term land development issues induced by racial, cultural and economic differences. Through combination, implication, blank-out or fragmentation of images and literary texts (language), it aims to manifest the politics of land ide ...
