My sculpture “Lamp” aims to express the subtle emotional exchanges between me and my mother in our daily life. Whenever I think of my mother, the first thing that came to my mind is her reading to me in the lamplight by the head of the bed. I spent countless nights like this with my mother, and it was a very important moment in my growing up. My mother read me fairy tales when I was young and Wittgenstein when I was older. To this day she still reads to me when I occasionally come back to sleep with her. I chose the old clothes my mother gave me and stitched them back into the shape of a lamp. I connected the clothes with the buttons of female identity, which indicated my female identity and also reflected my intimate relationship with my mother.
I think a lot of times creation is healing, it's trying to mend, it's stitching people's bodies and emotions together. People are stripped of those states of being separated and detached. I chose the body and memory as a subject, not consciously, but because it is a form that we all share; it is something that everyone has their own real authentic with.
