SHURUI KONG's work ranges from unconscious behaviour in daily life, to dreams, to presentations of combination of sound and printmaking through language. She focuses on the psychological and emotional resonance that people's physical senses bring to their own different environments, hoping to arouse people's attention to the essence in the rushed and complex era, or demonstrate the power of language through sound and culture. Artist's subject matter in each body of work determines the materials and the forms of the work. Although there may not always be material similarities between the different projects they are linked by recurring formal concerns and through the subject matter. Each of her projects is composed of a different series of media, but she always start with her own essence, during research and production new areas of interest arise and lead to the next body of work.
This solo exhibition work named 'ANOTHER U', it is mainly through the sensory interaction with the audience, from the dream to release people's emotions in the era of the pandemic, and to think about our relationship between the real and the unreal.
Dreams are like our shadows, and reflect our subconscious mind. Our psychological changes can also affect our dreams. How can we use our senses to feed back dreams and reality through other media? Do you have the same sensory resonance when you see these dream symbols and body language from the “U”?
