A room of one’s own in nowhere

a room of one

Inspired by an ancient fictional story written by Pu Songling, the artist imagined a post-apocalyptic world where human beings were regarded as outsiders. On a distant land, the protagonist encounters a group of non-human beings. Through self-discovery, the signification of societal norms is examined. This work incorporates moving images, sound art, and ceramics into its loosely structured narrative, offering thought-provoking commentary on the blurred line between humans and nonhumans, reality and phantom. Despite the futile attempt to depict humanness through images on a dying cellphone, themes such as inter-group dynamics, the archaeological, the kitsch, and the post-human all become intertwined in this piece.
