Have you even consider where do we go from here? What role do humans play in the world? This work uses critical expression techniques to describe the evolution and stories of human roles in our past, present and future. This work encourages us to rethink the human understanding of the individual, local and national history while guiding us to think about the understanding of art, culture and social progress. The exhibition aims to make people think about and challenge the colonial knowledge system.
Do you remember the black shootings this summer? At that time people statement in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. I still remember that many people didn’t take the threat of the COVID-19 and went out for the large-scale demonstrations. At that time, What I realize is people come together to face and refuse the issue of racial discrimination.
Where do we go from here? Provide a bridge for the medium through products, allowing everyone to think across time, land and space.
