The One Hundred Selfie Project is when I accidentally sorted out the memory of my phone and found that a lot of my personal selfies were saved in the phone. I often use selfies to record my daily life and emotional. This project is based on 100 images selected from 65,783 photos that are very reminiscent to me. After I edited these hundred pictures into a book, I used fire to destroy the edges of the book. In my culture, burning paper has a certain commemorative nature. I want to use this method to commemorate my heart and emotions over the past few years.

They She Hers
Cooperation with Zichen Wang. We have the same experience. We have too much to express on the subject of ‘her’ in cooperation. We are different, but we are the same in some ways. We were silent, screaming, crashing, crying, desperate and helpless. The expression of words is a very important part of this work. When the audience reads the words, the glass reflects the reflection of ‘her’, which in a certain way seems to present a unique style. And this project always bringing us question about how do we find our narrative in a disciplinary society? Each of us writes down our own experience, and empowers each other to write, present, and tell our individual experience. In this process, we passively accept the words written on the face. While we were writing on each other's faces, we whispered each other's text. Here, the story was told again. We all fear the gaze of others and desire to be recognized by others, but as individuals, we have entirely different ways to approach it.
Due to my depression and binge eating disorder caused by unconscious collection of my hair, regarding mental health and psychological pressure, my consciousness, emotions, and body have all undergone changes to varying degrees. The negative effects of the outside world and myself have led me to deny myself. This is a long-term project started in 2016.
Textures and shapes, 2021
The appearance and cracks of these ceramics represent the shape and lines of my body, perhaps the lines of my abdomen, vagina, arms or legs.
Unconscious Is Alive, 2019
My project is about nightmares. About my subconscious and the way my fears and anxieties manifest themselves in my dreams. Since a very young age, I was bound by various pressures within my environment. I have always been too concerned about what others think of me. I was afraid that I would not be accepted by my friends. I was forced to do things I did not like and always feft I was not doing well enough. The rope represents pressure, my lack of self-confidence, my lack of security. I am entangled, breathing with difficulty, being tied up. I want to put aside the pressure that binds me, and this project is my way of exploring this. Even if I am suffering again. Even if I am not fully understood, I want to be true to me.
