Artist’s Statement:

The foundations of my works start from thinking of struggles in my own life. Whether an incident or daily encounters, hardships spread their roots in one’s life and become part of the person. My interests lie in manipulating the form of an object to narrate these psychological states. This play with mundane objects brings an irony that breaks the culturally learnt norm, allowing the experience of day-to-day struggle: seemingly trivial, yet obtrusive. By sharing my own memories through my works, I intend to not only console myself but also the audience by creating an environment that acknowledges that struggle is an idea that exists amongst everyone.
