3 artworks / 23 exhibition

I want to show the connections and the reflections between the world and me by presenting my artworks. I am a clear and definite individual; on the other hand, the appearance of the world varies along with my perception and my consciousness. It thus affects the way of the connection between the world and me. I could not think of one clear description or a simple idea to sum up my artworks; however, they are somehow all related to disappearance, forgottenness, memory, the change or variation of different statuses, abandonees, aperture, and something else, something more. The more I want to describe something clearly; it ends up getting inevitably further from me.

I often choose video, photo, installation as a way to convey my idea, yet video and photo for me is not for delivering or carrying any message independently, they are both part of /belong to the installation, what I value is the roles they take in the installation and the relationship between them. To me, vision is definitely important in art, but as I imagine, art does not merely come from the vision, it often comes from something invisible: an atmosphere, a state, a sensibility other than vision that brought out by the visible art works. I value those cannot be directly reached by the vision, but can only be slightly touched by something more winding or more ambiguous.

My works are usually finished last week. I was thinking about things happened few years ago by then.

Honolulu Club
Splendid Moment These are tubes left on the commercial sign of the club, they’re stopped being lighten since the club shut down. The glory, the shine, became history along with the club. Maybe this is a way to extend the bright that it used to have. Don’t want to Sleep The next day of 2014/2/22, the club was going to cut off the power, return to silence and being abandoned again.
