After I had been engaging in art for 10 years in China,†I moved from south China to New York in 2001. I grew up in the Cultural Revolution in the 60ís and the 70ís, the reforming and opening of the national policy in the 80ís and the commercial economic society in the 90ís. My works were profoundly influenced by this kind of social changes, especially by the cities that have changed constantly and enormously. It inspired me to create a series of works with installations and performances.
In these works, the combination of conception and substance is emphasized, and the body itself turns into a kind of material and visual stimulant. Most of my works happened on the street and unusual space, which echoed the flourishing urban life in contemporary China.- Since I immigrated to the United States, I have been undergoing a radical change in my career. Confronting another social system and cultural background, my thinking direction is gradually changing and focusing on national politics. By comparison between Chinese and American society, I found the common and an amusing aspect among the great national politics. Their limitation is deeply roots in slogans such as claiming for justice and patriotic principles. A country's activities are usually under the flag of justice to have all kind of absurd actions and competitions, and lately this kind of thinking is reflecting in my works.
