My practice examines interpersonal, intimate relation between bodies. My projects often contain plurality where the objects do not exist alone but always in relationship with another within a spatial relation. These objects formally contrast or mimic one another to render a dichotomy of belonging and dis-belonging, togetherness and separation while remains perpetually codependent, connected.
Fleshy and vulnerable in material, these objects not only act as surrogates of different bodies but also come with an implication of “functions” or performance that complicates their mutual nearness. There is a chance of stretching and closing physical distance between objects, a wearable quality that transfers the relation of two objects into the actual bodies, or the changing of physical distance between two connecting objects based on spectators’ point of view/relation to the object in space.
The aporia of these objects relationship within distance poses distance a psychological subject. My works reflect the relationship between self and other within a landscape of separation, displacement and longing.
