Love the Jaws of the Lion, 2015
The decision of using fabric material recites the connection of our body shell, as well as our skins when we are alive. At the same time, it also reminds of a mummy’s shroud, such as the plain weave fabric in which a dead person is wrapped up.
I have specially arranged the displacement of two different layers with same imagery : one of them is being kept the whole narrative imagery, the another one serves as the remote background of work.
The display result is absorbing. The art piece looks like a three-dimensional illusion. Thanks to the lighting and the environment of the Crypt Gallery, the translucent layers are merged and changed into a new perspective in the surrounding space. The somewhat hidden figures engaged in a sex scene could signify the intimacy and privacy of the viewer with the content.
