Whimsical Echoes of Prehistoric Fertility Cult

Whimsical Echoes of Prehistoric Fertility Cult shows a series of 3D printed sculptures that find potential from a range of everyday materials, and make references to prehistoric fertility cults. By subverting the format, the work challenges the functionality of both male and female genitals, and questions fertility and sexual identity today. Similarly, a provocative self portrait with a pun title Pussy is showing alongside the sculptures. The work also asks: What are our expectations on daily objects? What are our expectations on fertility? And what's the relationship between them?

Performances:

Lipstick LoveThe performance shows me eating a lipstick in a gallery, exaggerating and transforming the ritual of applying cosmetics. The work is open for different interpretations, it can be read as the act to expose and question the reality of the cosmetic world, or unconventional use of daily materials.

12:30. The performance plays with my body's physical reactions.
