Our fingers，Like an idle breeze
Illingworth Kerr Gallery ／2020
"Are emerging artists thinking about the question: "How are we going to deal with the day when we may not be able to do what we love?" With this feeling about our time in the studio, how can we accomplish our research?I hope every artist can do what they love all their life, but not everyone can get what they want.I never hope to make our future better, but at least to make our present life less bad.The style of my works is deeply influenced by the North American Studio Glass Movement. As one of the cities with intensive glass blowing in the world, Seattle has many excellent glass artists.I joined the 3D4M department in late 2015, was taken by my professor to meet Dale Chihuly in '16, and worked at the Museum of Glass Tacoma before leaving Seattle in' 18.Every artist in residence at the museum that I knew, the guest at the museum had very high handicraft skills, and that became my main goal at the time.

I Can’t Drink With You Any More
Stride Gallery ／2020
I Can’t Drink With You Anymore is an installation of glass objects and written scripts. This social engagement is not only a part of a work’s birth, organization, execution, or continuation, but also an aesthetic in the object making itself: of interaction and development from past to present. Paper documentation is a concrete expression of the social relations in the studio, which not only protects the artist’s privacy (he can choose what to write down) but also brings awareness to the audience of the importance of the inter-personal relationships of making a glass object. Hermeneutic encounters reveal the “negativity of experience”: a hermeneutic experience worthy of the name disrupts the expectancies one has of an artwork or text so that one is forced to think again. Such esoteric expression of experience is actually the key point in reading the glass objects displayed in I Can’t Drink With You Anymore.
The emptiness of WaresⅡ
I personally believe craftsmanship is a kind of artistic value widely pursued by industrial art practitioners, that is, skill is one of the most important components of craftsmanship. In addition to pursuing the details and technical complexity of the objects themselves, what else can industrial art practitioners get from their studio practice? If well-executed objects are excluded, what is the essence of the creation itself? That's one of the things I do. My personal research direction is to explain the act of glass blowing itself through hermeneutics, so as to find the core of the glass blower.

About the exhibition
Art is a language that doesn’t need translation. For a long time, art has played an important role in the communication between China and other countries. In the context of economic globalization, cultures from all over the world collide and fuse with each other, forming a multi-cultural network. Chinese culture and various cultures of other countries meet here, forming a strong and diverse artistic atmosphere As globalization makes the cultural and artistic exchanges between countries more frequent and more closely connected, the optimization of the international artistic ecological environment also provides new opportunities for the evolution of art. Art is enriched by exchanges and mutual learning; the development of art requires international exchanges and cooperation, the active participation of artists from all countries, the sharing of ideas, the collision of hearts and the blending of emotions.This initiative is hosted by the Sino-Canada Alliance of Arts and Culture,York University Centre for Asian Research, Sensorium: Centre for Digital Arts and Technology, the Luxun Academy of Fine Arts gallery, and the School of Visual Communication Design of LAFA, with funds from the Canada-China Initiative Grant from York Centre for Asian Research, and Double first-class project approved by Lu Xun Academy of Fine Arts.
