PART OF ME
This project covers two parts. The first part consists of two of my paintings, which show my special dream and memories of my grandmother’s superstitious activities. The second part is related to the installation art, which indicates my thinking of such memories as an onlooker once I have grown up. This two parts relates to my living with my grandmother for four years (1998-2002) when I was young. During these four years, I learned about conventional Chinese culture, folk customs, and strange superstitions. As a little child, I felt lonely and was frightened by these strange things. I think that these memories were partly to blame for my loneliness and low self-confidence. However, I dismissed them from my mind when I thought of them, once I grew up.
