My work is concerned with power and powerlessness, real and virtual, confidence and vulnerability, and more specifically the spaces ‘in between’ these states. I have explored these notions through reconfiguring or exaggerating or simplifying the figures or backgrounds of original source. By dissecting or ‘re-collapsing’ these once powerful images, the work becomes semi-abstracted, but still alludes to the real.
Through this exhibition, I would like to investigate the concept of ‘in between’ of reality and virtuality or powerful and powerless that might influence on people psychologically in the contemporary world. The resulting expressionistic figures on the abstract form of virtual stage sit out from the wall, deciding their own physicality. In both form and content, they are neither powerful nor powerless; they oscillate between both and thus reside amongst the ‘in between’.
