Statement by the artist
These works were sourced from my photos taken in these years. They were piled up like chicken ribs, so I operated on them, like a surgeon. I applied various methods according to different pictures: engraving, rubbing, curling, or making a photography installation with other objects. I tried all I can to save these pictures by giving them new meanings. Each picture was printed by hand. I looked them over and over to explore their inner dramatic structures, or even another space. When the image is regarded as a pure object, the print becomes a tangible place.

THEBOOKSHOP
by THEBOOKSHOW

THEBOOKSHOW is a Singapore-based initiative that began in 2014. It aims to act as a platform for aspiring artists to showcase books conceived out of passion. Through the use of the book, a basic and familiar medium, THEBOOKSHOW advances towards being a mediator between the art world and the general public. Our hope is to bring a renewed perspective upon our eyes. We believe very much in challenging the medium - moving away from the conventional form that the book takes. In time, we hope to build a substantial database advocating that the book form is an art in and of itself.
