Expo ‘Re-Union’ is an urgent call for attention to our familiarity with nature and our belonging to nature.
Want to know more stories behind ‘Re-Union’ and the craftwomanship ‘Dry flower art’?
With the exhibition ‘Re-Union’, I research the relationship between nature and human beings. With the rapid development of technology and escalation of climate crisis, I feel the urgency to reflect upon our relationship with (our) nature. During the corona lockdown, I had more space and time to wonder in nature and to contemplate by myself. 'Dry flower art' became my tangible way of expression and reflection.
Through the making process, I search for an active exchange of knowledge with nature by embracing the given color and shape of each petal. I collect and create visual as well as sensory languages and cultures by playing with the botanical materials that nature provides. I draw inspiration from my cultural background as well as my contemporary spiritual experiences. I find my source of inspiration in nature, in Chinese mythology, and in the human body.
