Li Jiawen’s real-life account of a fraud is told through the eyes of a young woman who sells flowers for a living. The figure in the work is driven away, wandered, and encounters the same experience in a different time and space in a state of limbo.
The artist forensically revisits, deconstructs, and reconstructs this experience, extracting visual elements and coded language, fusing time, place, and events to recreate an unstable space-time, filled with fragments of elements from different dimensions. The artist’s individualized perspective creates a thread that collides in a cascade of virtual and real events. The artist does not present a direct facsimile of the events but leaving gaps in these ‘scenes’ for the viewer’s imagination.
