As an artist, I mainly explore the social pressures and dilemmas faced by women in the 21st-century Chinese social environment. They often come from the imbalance between the roles of the family and society; the gender discrimination that traditional Chinese thought and culture impose on women. The conflict with socially constructed ideas was caused by the awakening of women's rights.
I used intimate and feminine materials such as wool, thread and women's dresses. Some characteristics of the material come from Mongolian craft patterns and colours (Ethnic Minorities in China) which symbolize my cultural root. I have a strong affinity for stereotypically 'female' crafts such as woollen fabrics. For example, in my work “You need to know”; I used a tufting gun- this typical female repeating making process to complete the piece. In terms of content, it reflects the excessive expectations and demands that I received from my parents. In terms of materials and the process of making it, it shows my particular cultural background and my reflection on the traditional labour that women represent. In my work I use the power of words to retell the constraints I feel in my life, I use the imperfection of the female body to express the demands on women's appearance, and I use feminine clothing to show how I feel when I am not understood in my relationship with my mother. As Simone de Beauvoir said “A woman is shut up in a kitchen or a boudoir, and one is surprised her horizon is limited; her wings are cut, and then she is blamed for not knowing how to fly. Let a future be open to her and she will no longer be obliged to settle in the present. “ (The Second Sex, 1949）I want women to be able to express themselves more authentically, free from the constraints of society, find their wings and fly freely.
