Painting (MA)

The two years have passed very quickly. Before I came to RCA, most of my works were paintings, expressing the mystery and concealment with realistic things or materials. I don't know why I am interested in this aspect. Until to London, maybe came to a strange place more, I began to conceal this and hide the insecurity of broke out completely, it is also directly contributing to the two years through the mask this concept, I have been in combination with their experiences and I focus on contemporary controversial phenomenon to do work, such as mask, cosmetics (lipstick  eye shadow), skin (belly). In particular, I used plaster as a material to express the shape of the belly, thus creating an installation work with a sense of ritual.

 

For example, from the perspective of women, makeup was originally a very common way to beautify themselves from ancient to modern times, but now in Asia, makeup has sometimes become a form of kidnapping and coercion. In South Korea, if a woman does not make up in public, she will be surrounded by onlookers, abused and even beaten. It is unthinkable, but it is actually happening in the society. On the surface, China is not so strict with women, but the behavior and thoughts of objectifying women are still deeply rooted. Identity is an even more ancient topic, and the recent global protests over the death of Freud in the United States have made us realize that discrimination against identity is everywhere. I always follow current events, and I hope my work will always reflect social problems, alert the world and bring reflection.

People need to face the society with many different faces and identities in the world. Compared with men, women's identities in family and society are more complicated and diverse. For example, you would never ask a man how to balance work and family. At the same time, our perceptions of ourselves are complex and fragile. Do you really know yourself? With changing roles and the stress of different roles, adult breakdowns can come in a flash. That's why I use both gypsum and facial mask, both of which are hard and soft, but both are equally fragile.

A piece of colorful face, was I made into a long dress wrapped in the body. According to which god's script are our joys and sorrows in life? Just like the Truman Show, maybe every step we take is arranged and guided. After painting on the mask, I made it into a dress, put it on myself and interpreted the work from the perspective of photography. I wanted to express my interpretation of the mask concept in an experimental and absurd way.
