Xiaojing Yan: Bridge 2009-2013

Facebook

Installation created with 1500 ceramic spoons.

"In my art, every idea travels through the intricate passageway of how I think in Chinese but speak in English. Choosing the right material for my work is like choosing the right word in my vocabulary. For Guan Yin, the Goddess of Compassion, I applied the red threads used to make tassels for Chinese lanterns to a statue I had cast of her, and then, even though she was touching the floor, I suspended her by a wire to show how, in my adopted culture, I am suspended between what I used to be and whatI am becoming.

I use the minimalist concepts and theatricality of my work to expose the intricate layers of my internal world where Chinese culture, training and traditions inspire my work so I can build a bridge of survival, safety and adaptation to the foreign land that molds and informs my work.

I filter Chinese thoughts through English words, English words through Chinese culture, and my images through the concepts of my art - all the while my core sense of Self remains suspended above and between these two worlds.”
