Life tells lies
Double Screen Video Installation
Duration: 11 mins

The work focus on the social status of women and the wave of feminism raised in contemporary China in recent years. it discusses the conflict between the traditional ideas, the women that carried on from generation to generation and the contemporary feminism among young women. It were done with my family members, filmed in the apartment where my parents lived. All the plots in the video are adapted from my observation of my grandma and mum’s real life, and the imagination of my own future. I’m trying to weave an seemingly conforming woman’s life to the social expectations.
