My work present layers of contradiction and vulnerability
from my life experiences. I create a space which seems like my body
with a boundary between inside and outside. It attracts attention
and invites the viewers to get close, walk through, be surrounded
and have a dialogue, and it simultaneously provides an imaginary
space for me only. My work also expresses a kind of pain under the
appearance of beauty.
My approach explores my ambivalence and anxiety
on the basis of the cell, female body, beauty, culture and identity.
The concepts in my work are supported by my use of various materials.
I collect found objects and transform them into new forms that contain
special metaphors or meanings. For example, I transform the twisted,
wrinkled, and screaming expression of the facial mask into a metaphor
for my potential fear and struggle. The stiffened material expresses
a kind of pain and anxiety under the appearance of beauty. By bringing
sculpture, photography, and performance into my work, I transform
my consciousness into a visible self-examination.
