DESCRIPTION (ENG)

Dummy is created from human being's own images and as the replica of them; it is injected the accepted standards of perfect beauty, for example, body shape, soft and smooth skin, golden ratio of face and body height. However, it has the appearance of being real but lacking of nature capacities, have no identity and self-character. It only can do as the mercy of others.

If dummy is the accepted standard of perfect beauty of our society, it becomes the needs of us. In order to avoid isolate and feel safe, we have blindly to follow it. However, afraid of being heterogeneous, we never have or even try to create our own dummy; therefore we will not escape the accepted dummy.

Most of us are born with imperfect, with the aid of delineate the endless process of pursuit the accepted standards of being a perfect woman throughout the century, to harmony depicting of the epoch background with meticulous and deliberation brushwork which intend to beautify and veiling the hurt of the body; I try to convey the genuine nature of humanity, which has long been contorted and reflected a strain of values set by our society.

櫥窗人偶是人類自身形象的投射,是人體外相的複製品,並為它們注入了人類對美麗的完美標準;例如,完美的身段,柔軟和光滑的皮膚,塑造黃金比例的臉型和身高。然而,儘管它擁有如何真實的外表,但它卻缺乏身份及個性,沒有思想。它唯一能做的是任人擺佈。

如果櫥窗人偶是我們社會認同美麗的標準,那麼它就形成了我們的追逐目標,盲目地遵循它,這是為了避免被孤立和感到安全。因為害怕被標籤為異類,我們從來也沒有嘗試逃避成為人人相同的人體模型人。

我們大多數人都有與生俱來的不完善,借助描繪追逐完美女性的沒完沒了過程,配以和諧的時代背景,一絲不扣和深思熟慮的筆法來美化和隱瞞身體的傷害; 我試圖傳達人類的真正性質,這早已被扭曲,反映了我們的社會設定標準的無形壓力。
