Who would you most like to collaborate with and why?
I would like to collaborate with kids the most. The way small kids draw a line and shape before any art training always fascinates me, there is almost a primitive sense in it.
How has covid affected you and your art?
Covid started shortly after I moved to Berlin. At the beginning of this pandemic many art activities were cancelled, it isolated me but also gave me a lot of quiet time to create and reflect.
From September 1 to September 13, your solo exhibition will be held at HAZEGALLERY. Tell us more about the exhibition.
The exhibition shows my continuous explorations of ancient culture with humour and playfulness. One of the highlights will be my half snake half human soft sculpture “Mawa” that inspired by folk tale and ancient stone carving figures. “Mawa”, that sounds like “mama”, has a connection with the first goddess in the Chinese culture. But Mawa is not old or aged, her soul is as young as mine, and what I experience resonates in her ancient echoes. She is a contemporary goddess grows from the blossom of the past.
The show also includes my first porcelain installation. The porcelain are carved with texts & symbols with a special glaze so light can shine through their bodies, and creates an immersive and mysterious situation for audiences to experience and wander around.
