Hiding and Observing Seriese
By experience of making the Painting with Movable Objects seriese, I started performance based works using my body as a subject.
This Hiding and Observing series, I was interested in camouflaging, hiding, or obsecuring my physicality in this foreign countly. I attempt to explor my awkwardness in the social expectations, as well as social norms between my home culture and the country I now live in by photographs.
By those performative works, using a series of props to hide my body or face during social interactions, I also documented viewers' responses and myself by video to investigate the relationships in me and the cultural circumstances in the society I live, as well as paradoxically draws attention to myself.
