Who Am I?
Who am I? Where am I from? And where am I going?
Whose story is this? Which one is the real me?
How much do you know about your Self? And how much is unknown? Are we honest enough with ourselves?
YEH Tsai-Wei is an ink painter that aims to overturn conventions. Her works are filled with unique and modern concepts, and depicts the younger generations’ view of their surroundings. YEH Tsai-Wei used images of young girls to depict herself before socialization, using storytelling elements to underly the realistic world of modern life. In Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony, two girls flanked by giant, thorny cactuses are playing with string figures. The two girls may appear like mirror images of each other, yet their expressions reveal that they are separate and independent individuals. The picture symbolizes the process of socialization and how it prevents individuals from knowing who they truly are. Through this light and gently colored work, YEH Tsai-Wei offers a satirical presentation of thought-provoking topics based upon her observations of our modern society.
