"Still Life." Combining the architectural space of the Suzhou Bay Cultural Center with the upcoming day of the Chinese Winter Solstice, The artist embodies the concept of a still-life sculpture by using a pair of silver umbrellas, an object of protection and shelter. The artist, hidden between the umbrella's vibrant yellow membrane, emerges from her metamorphosis confinement, simulating the state of a seed. The artist's poise body, and intervening gradual movements, growing and sprouting a little, show the most primitive power of life."
