Performance: 20’ at Unnamed Gallery
From the perspective of a family's generation, a person's life will probably go through two stage of childhood, old age and adolescence. The childhood value of human beings is constantly recalibrated because it is influence by the society's culture. Beginning with a baby's state of understanding, the performance combined the conversations with the audience as a participant and sculpture, different cultural mythological texts and my physical interpretations. In the performance, I divided the piece into three periods of childhood history chronologically, and told the stories from 15th century to 20th century that how we change our perceptions toward children. In the sea of life, audience could re-exploring and picking up the childhood stories in history.
