Title: Born to be an Actress

Year: 2019

Media: Cotton Fiber, Water Soluble Glue, Raw Silk Thread

Dimension: 28” x13” x5” 71x33x12(cm)

This work was inspired by a photo of my third daughter when she was three years old. The eldest daughter treated my third daughter like a dress-up doll and wore various hats and dresses.

And the third daughter also enjoyed crossing her legs, putting her hands on her knees, looking away from the camera, posing like an actress, and taking pictures. Eighteen years later, the third daughter really became an actress. Looking at the old photos, I think she was born as an actress. She plays a role in her profession, but in my opinion we all have multiple roles: students, teachers, children, parents, office workers, and so on. So we can all be born as actors/actresses. If you feel suffering and think that you are only playing one of the roles, you can relieve it by taking a bird's-eye view.

About the Exhibition

Children 2021 is an international juried fine art dual opportunity, appreciating childhood and celebrating life in a better world through artistic visualization of children's faces, figures, emotions, and acts.

Since the Conversion on the Rights for children, their education and health have been improved worldwide in three decades. Yet, there is a long way ahead, and poverty, inequality, discrimination, and labor continue to affect the children's lives in many countries.

Moreover, alarming environmental changes to access clean air, water, a safe climate, and obesity are challenges ahead of the next generation.

For Children 2021, we are looking for your artistic interpretation of children in relation to family, health, playing games, education, technology, poverty, abuse, violence, labor, and other related contexts to bring to life a visual expression of Children of the world, our best hope for a better future.
