"My practice plays between the fictional world and reality by using a found item, fabric, through painting, collage, and sculpture methods." - Ziwei Gong
Interested in bringing the fictional to life and transform reality into fictional languages, Ziwei Gong uses her work to create spaces where fiction and reality meet and blend with each other.
Inspired by the quarantine experience recently, she started to make large collages using fabrics. Clothes, bedsheets, gauze and other soft fabrics lead to a comfortable and domestic feeling. In this series, Gong imagines what people would do in an isolated indoor space. Through placing cutout figures and objects on fabric, these pieces explore how people do things and kill time by interacting with objects and how people engage themselves with different spaces.
