/Artist 藝術家/

I graduated from Donghua University with a Bachelor's Degree in Fashion and Accessory Design, and graduated with a Master's Degree in Art and Design from Donghua University as well as in Womenswear Design from Milan Istituto Marangoni. My graduation design work was featured in VOGUE Italy. I worked as freelancer with Adidas, Puma, off- white and other brands for fashion design collection.

我畢業於東華大學,獲得了時尚與配飾設計學士學位,並在東華大學獲得了藝術與設計碩士學位,同時也在米蘭馬蘭儂尼學院獲得了女裝設計碩士學位。我的畢業設計作品曾在意大利《時尚》雜誌上被推薦。我曾作為自由職業者與阿迪達斯、彪馬、Off-White等品牌合作進行時裝設計。

Perspectives on Tradition and Future, Sustainability and Fashion, and Life.
關於傳統與未來、永續與時尚生活的看見

The state I was in with society at that time reminded me of Marx's concept of self-alienation mentioned in Han Byung-chul's book. The ideal self is an integration of external desires. I was embedded in these integrations and I was lost and empty. I wanted to break free from the invisible bonds given to me by the outside world and had the self-consciousness to resist it. But I still felt that powerful stickiness. I want to be clear, even if this may only be a partial detachment. In this works, I print images I’ve taken through expired film onto stretch fabrics I've reclaimed from factories. Pulling them onto those second-hand recycled collapsible metal frames. I use the hot melt technique and recycled TPU fabric to connect fabrics and metals. The soft sculpture made of TPU fabric also expresses the state of being partially free but still embedded in society.

我當時所處的社會狀態讓我想起了韓秉宙在他的書中提到的馬克思的自我疏離概念。理想的自我是外在欲望的整合。我被這些整合所包裹,感到迷失和空虛。我想要擺脫外界給予我的看不見的束縛,並有自覺地抗拒它。但我仍然感到那種強大的粘性。我想要明確,即使這可能只是部分脫離。在這些作品中,我將我拍攝的圖像通過過期的底片印在我從工廠回收的彈性布料上。我將它們拉到二手回收可折疊金屬框架上。我使用熱熔技術和回收的TPU布料將布料和金屬連接在一起。由TPU布料製成的軟雕塑也表達了部分自由但仍然被社會所困的狀態。
