U.S. (Unwholesome Shelter) 「美」國
The fundamental inspiration for my work is love, its beauty and complexity, while thematically, my work revolves around gender, sexuality, and race. I create artwork as a process for healing and questioning and draw on theory from (non-)academic works because I expect myself to be an artist and thinker.
The ideology of my works is "Family-unfriendly."
This series juxtaposes the torn and dirty USian flag with the naked bodies of all genders, races, sexuality, nationality, and cultural backgrounds to capture their vulnerability, emotions, and strength, critiquing the United States as the dreamland and shelter for all humans. Moreover, I am interested in the body, not some mainstream beauty. I encourage people all to model nude because I am not interested in censoring any specific body parts. If they are part of the body, they deserve to be seen/there.
