Feminine - Desire
I tend to express my ambivalent feeling that sometimes I would like to get something but I feel afraid of facing it. I used the image of flower to express my desire toward some wonderful things and different postures of the flowers symbolize different degrees of desire. The colorful flowers seem to burst and attract people’s attention, but the sharp pins in the center of the flowers keep viewers at a distance when viewers come closer.
The shadow of my struggling figure reflects on the corner and these flowers are installed in front of them. It seems that I am tangled with these various desires and frustrated in the corner.
