Chinese painting on facial tissues, Video


ART FORM :

 Chinese Arts

THEME OF DESIGN :

 Objects
 Personal Feeling


SUMMARY :

What is art? What is daily object? They are contradictory in a way, yet the fine line between them is certainly blurred and unclear, making people feel confused.

The work aims to question the perception of art in our society. What I intend to do is to transform the nature of the daily objects by switching the properties of fine art to those of functional objects.

As a kind of daily objects, disposable facial tissues are rather common. Through appropriating varied traditional patterns of the precious blue-and-white porcelain, I redefine the value of it, highlighting the ambiguity between fine art and “non-art”.
