Artwork description:

'2020 CM' depict surreal, youthful, feminine figures placed in abstract urban construction. This theme is ignited by my internal, narcissistic gaze triggered by a geekish adrenalin rush from Manga. At its core, Manga is male-dominated which often leads to subjective bias and gender stereotypes. The protagonist, patrilineal fantasy I perceived in Manga discriminate against my biological gender. I internalised this psychological variation and reflected it in my moving image practice to respond to gender fluidity. Transforming still images into androgynous, animated characters, I employed internet memes as a method to blur genders boundaries. The performances endow these characters with the power of symbolising non-binary, challenging viewers’ conventional perceptions both visually and conceptually.

'2020 CM: Ivory Ball' is one of many paintings I animated in my moving image piece 'Memes' .
