Artist Statement


My interests often lie in people’s interactions which can be very complex and unpredictable under different circumstances and environments. These kind of interactions could happen both online and offline. Influenced by relational aesthetics, I like to use “people” as the main medium in my work and create exhibition-based, more open-ended, site-specific projects. Triggering active interactions with the audiences is the key concern in my process of making work. Thinking to challenge the existing hierarchies and conventions in the art world is often the starting point of my project. Building certain intimate relationships with the audiences or transforming the daily situations into something unfamiliar often appears in my work.
I like creating pieces that can be experienced outside the galleries and adaptable under any limited conditions. For example, although I like the intense interactions that one can experience inside the galleries, I also don’t dislike making net art. Due to the current Covid situation, we need more art that focuses on the digital world than before, which is no less real than the reality. The internet has a different mechanism and language, which is perfect for artists to experiment and create new forms — artwork that only can be experienced through online. I also built an online library of interesting things I found on internet, which is an area often ignored by the serious academic world. Video games, mass culture, internet, art in non-western countries, should all be included within the scope of creation. Nothing has a definite definition, everything is in flux. But we often forget it and don’t even realise some other possibilities exist. My work brings these possibilities to the public and challenge their usual perception on how things should be.
