Artist Statement:

As a member of the modern society, we may somehow face an identity crisis, struggling to find out who and what we are.  Through the projects of "Clonequins",  "B.E.D" and "deja vu" , I try to explore the blood relation and personal expression theme in a "contemporary and specific" manner and study the socio-cultural influence on our personal development.

The notion of cloning is an interesting study of lost identity.  The birth of Dolly, the first animal clone of the world, marks the beginning of the end of the cycle of natural reproduction.  Replicating animals paves the way for human cloning, further complicating the problem of identity crisis.

While "Clonequins" deals with social and worldwide issues, "B.E.D."(Beyond Existential Dimension), a continuation of the Clonequins series, explores a more personal subject matter on my inner feeling together with my past experience.  There are a lot of activities going on in bed, through this association, the beyond existential dimension is created.

My recent "deja vu"project, again a more personal introspection, focuses on the development of my self-ego in relation and response to external social environment and childhood experience.  The impact of moral values on and its interaction with personal development is also a major subject of concern.
