Series concept:
Fragment of Long Term Memory (LTM), an ongoing photographic series, conveys an unrealistic world through fragments of reality. My understanding of reality comes from its moments of beauty, sadness, fun, perfection, and those days when nothing special happens. Many parts of our memories, however, are often forgotten, or difficult to recall. I retrieve those fragmented moments and reconstruct them as surreal images. I gather these misplaced memories from certain parts of our reality, and together they create a non-linear story, resonating with each other in my photographs.
I shoot landscapes as well as self-portraits in which I appear painted white. I also use materials such as body parts and models of buildings that I make myself using clay, wire and paper to make this unrealistic world. The work puts audiences in the ambivalent position of not knowing what is real and what is not.
My art shows that those two worlds—reality and fiction—are very intimate, and often appear without clear distinction. Reality is a key to access the unrealistic world, and unreality is also a key to access reality.
