Potential Cell No.19 – Fear Wall
My installations present layers of contradiction and vulnerability
from my life experiences. My sculptures represent the structure
of organic form and reveal the link between body and mind.
I create a space which seems like my body, my inner world
with a boundary between inside and outside. The surface
which looks like a lace surface attracts the viewer’s attention
and invites one to get close, walk through, be surrounded
by the thin walls, and have a dialogue. It simultaneously
holds an imaginary space for me only. It looks like a soft
surface, but actually it is hard and serves as a symbol
of the fragility of life.
The concepts in my work are supported by hundreds of
facial masks possessing a fragile tactile character. I
transform the twisted, wrinkled, and screaming expression
of the facial mask to the metaphor of my potential melancholy,
fear, and struggle. The stiffened material expresses a
kind of pain and anxiety under the appearance of beauty.
