"Since 2019, there has always been one place in my home country or Europe that is suffering. I can't escape the feeling of being caught in between two places or being torn in half. I fled back and forth between physical reality and cyberspace, looking for an ice floe to stay on for a little moment. This series of works is a record and a reflection of such experience.
I am trying to find and express a state of "in-between", between one moment and the next, between reality and illusion, between movement and stand still, between appearance and disappearance...... And this state is not static and finite. Amid two opposing forces exists a very small space, a tiny and narrow gap. That can be either the place where the transformation takes place or where the two forces collide. It is a passage or a solid boundary. The journey of exploration and practice is to enter into this space of "in-between", to feel the strong pressure and the attraction between them. 
My works compose a letter for those days on the ice floe. Welcome to the in-between."
