Artist Statement

Art is an Auto-Radical-Thought projected in a tangible form. I use everyday found objects as part of the medium to convey my momentaneous ideas. The alternated manifestation of found object poses an answer and a question. The ambiguity, like the ying-yang, is the state of life. And my work is just a fragment of living.

In the ‘Leveler’, the spirit tube is replaced by a small vial of perfume. Will this feminine replacement make the masculine tool in a better balance? The ‘Bad Art’ (bad reads ba&<720;d, and means bath in German) consists of a ‘Chair’ (throne) made of toilet seat, and a ‘champagne fountain’, which is a nicely wrapped washbasin. Chair symbolizes power, status, or position. However, no matter who we are, when we seat on the throne (which means toilet in British slang), we are all mortal. Hair is one of my favor media. It’s a symbol of power in the biblical story, while it’s an emblem of trouble in the eastern value. Both trouble and power could be a lock, if their meanings of existence are not interpreted. In the ‘Locks’, a padlock is nicely dressed with pleated hair.

Art is neither an answer nor a question, it’s mere an existing thing. My beautification of found objects is a way of applause for their existence.
