Images in Between: My Artistic Research and Practice



Using images as an entrance, through the historical track of Eastern and Western art, reveals the meaning of “in-between” in contemporary art forms. Using the perspective of Chinese philosophy, we analyze the role of “borrowing and transformation” in contemporary art, emphasizing the importance of the generating state of “likeness and unlikeness” and the changing relationship between one object and other objects. If contemporary art is seeking the maximum expression of the image, then the relationship between one image and the other is the means to reach the maximization of the image. In the past, we have used images in isolation for expression; when the images are expressed as relationships, they would achieve maximum expressive power. In a word, this paper explores the possibilities of expression between images with my personal contemporary art practice!
