Works statement:
This work examines why the how-to of success has always been underscored in our cultural environment and socialisation, alongside, however, a severe absence of discussion over how to deal with failure, something that every one of us has to confront. I think the future is uncertain and unstable for both my homeland and the whole world. So I have attempted to create an uncertain and unstable power in the installation. Through my works, I most urgently wish to shed light on where we are heading, where we are coming from, and where we are now. How can we cope with and overcome failures? And can we seek ultimate values in them?
So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.
