翁丽莉  LILY WENG 

Lily Weng is an interdisciplinary artist based in China and London. She produces work in a variety of media including sculpture, performance, and photography. In Weng’s work, she explores the interaction between the urban environment and human behavior. The undergraduate study provided her with a clear perception of the relationship between objects and space. She prefers to see her culture as a sort of assemblage in a fluid community and regard herself as an object in this space, a space of time, consciousness, and experience which she calls abstract space. In this space, she investigates how her body positions and interacts with this atmosphere. Her sculpture began with her observation and transformation of her consuming habit in different places. She is continuing collecting product packages and is going to invite her “body” in her work, body casting with a different kind of “paper” refer to her previous work “paper as vessel” and those product packages made from paper, which is an important material in her practice. She thought her body and herself is two different separate individuals, body is a substitute for her mind. It was inspired by Antony Gormley of how he uses his body as a vehicle to communicate with his world. She has an ongoing photographic series-Meet, which investigates the creativity and coincidence of objects in her daily life. Her practice creates the conversation between the realistic and fictional world and her works simultaneously present a negative and positive environment.
