Each memory of lives leaves traces. A trace is the accumulation of fortuities, assemblage of differences and the witness of carved history. This history only can be discovered by whom watches it and there’s an unique beauty inside. I rework on my observation to bring the eternity to the ephemeral states and to let them speak about themselves. By giving a corporeity to an instant, the fleeing memories can be exposed.
An artwork connects the artist and visitors to communicate over the time and the space. This experience makes audiences to see the world in wider and different way. I think art brings extraordinariness to ordinary life. Once experienced another way of life, we understand the world with more sensibility. My work transformes my memory into your experience : I come from exterior to awake hidden stories around you.
