There Is No Escape (and so...?)

In The Name Of The Rose is a multi-media installation that aims to dissect combined sensory experiences and separate them into individual engagements. By examining them one at a time, our particular sensory experience is heightened. Through the sense-making non-linear editing of our brain, all of these sensuous sensory experiences are sutured together again in a continuous timeline, and different narrations are created. This exhibition attempts to further investigate the relations between the singular self and the collective self in the orientalist gaze, with the shift between dominant and submissive positions.

A multi-sensory experience is presented through the narratives surrounding my own given name 薇 ('rose' in Chinese), silent moving-image works, an audio piece, a long tactile letter and the scent of a rotten rose.
