'It is natural to look for the difference between here and there, and in you and I. But it is more encouraging to realize how similar we are.'

FILMING & FURTHER RESEARCH

September 2012 - May 2014

During the travelling performance I found the artists who inspired my ideas like I saw the Chinese exhibition of artist in Florence, Italy who were the first generation of Chinese performance artists (Zhang Huan). This helped me because he showed his exhibition all over the world and he had lived in different countries during his lifetime and this is inspired me and showed me how the Chinese artist are involved in the global art world. That way he found his identity.
 
Also in the China motherland, a media person (Qu Zhi Hang) did the push ups and travelled around China doing a naked performance for 8 years really inspired me how he connect himself to the social environment is the success of his art piece,
 
I also saw the Cuban American Ana Mendieta has also inspired me because of the way she uses her body and connects with the natural environment.
After the Pecha Kucha I thought it was agreat way to review my thoughts and practice communicating my dieas with other artists. Also to get to know other artists in my class.
 
I printed bags and T shirts with my nude image on and I want to sell them and wear them when I perform whilst travelling. I want to make practical art to help support my travels.

 

As Lacan the mirror stage said children learn about themselves from the mirror, so I learned about myself  from the mirror of culture and society.That's the reason I travel around the word.

Mirror stage

 

From Wikipedia

A toddler and a mirror

The mirror stage (Frenchstade du miroir) is a concept in the psychoanalytic theory of Jacques Lacan. The mirror stage is based on the belief that infants recognize themselves in a mirror (literal) or other symbolic contraption which induces apperception (the turning of oneself into an object that can be viewed by the child from outside of himself) from the age of about six months.
