Coucher

The French verb Coucher comes from col-locate, to sleep in the same spot, to share a location. As human beings, we begin our life in the vulva and end in the tomb, and the third location designates the bed, precisely the place to be born and die, but also to sleep, be ill, and dream. The work connects the emotions and relationship between mother and daughter, family structure and female identities with the movements, sound recordings, and mattresses. In Chinese Confucianism, the concept of the female is missing, and I'm trying to explore the boundary, pain, and emotions as being a daughter. The confession is a new lease of life and the expression of femininity.
