Memento of the 1980s

Collage, 2016

The 1980s is a special period in China. The Opening-up made China a huge scrapbook. The unprecedented multi-elements of the society generated the huge collision between new and old ideas.

This group of collages is consisted of six historical moments which represent six groups of memory fragments. Using deconstruction and reconstruction, I try to investigate and discuss the dramatic changes during the past 30 years. Do we live a better life? Have we realized the dreams at that time?
