ARTIST STATEMENT

I am interested in “the screen” as both actual and metaphorical sites of mediation among desiring human subjects ; where we are represented under restrictions, but also present ourselves with passion. Inspired by my own ambivalent relationships to “the screen” and the ideological forces behind it, I often use my body or performances to blur the dichotomies, such as object / subject, virtual / real, digital / analog, two dimensionality / three dimensionality, fascination / disgust, desire / aversion etc. Through the above process, I explore the intricacy of the viewing and desiring subjects that are often undermined in the male-oriented, capitalist culture.
