Doctors restored the fractures inside my body with their medical skills and tools, while I healed my inner insecurity with artmaking and endless conversations with myself.
The accident in 2008 forced me to put down my work and took a detour from the straight path. I did not have other choices but to switch my focus on the unexpected injury, and take an unexpected rest from what I had been doing. I was at first worried and feared that my life would be ruined, but later I felt blessed when realizing how I was loved, helped, and cared for by so many people. My inner weakness and pessimistic thoughts gradually turned optimistic. Although it seemed that I did not do much during the recovery period when I could not move or walk, it also gave a chance to reexamine my life. For me, the whole journey was like a self-healing art therapy, bringing me back to life again. The exhibition features how my life has completely changed after the accident. Meanwhile, like how my previous works echo my life experiences, I also visualize these sentiments and moments I have experienced in the art-making process. When I softly throw the fake flour-bones to the floor and films how it clashes, the broken pieces remind me of the accident. I need to be fixed again.
