"Through cutting, engraving and stitching, the artist explores the process of destruction, healing and creation. From the formal language, she cracks the code of human existence and explores the laws of the "Jiang Hu/complicated human world" in a relaxed manner. "

                                                                        -- curator Zhao Wenling
