"Why can’t Keai be strong and independent?"
#1 EVERYDAY KEAI LIFESTYLE ✯☽ .✧ . *
‘Everyday Keai Lifestyle’ shows how I performed Keai in daily life. Records of my daily life by instagram flow from the mobile phone on a tripod to the floor, all over the exhibition.
#2 NOT YOUR STEREOTYPE ✯☽ .✧ . *
Objectified myself, burned myself.
"The categories such as gender, occupation, personality, etc., do not exist, but different behaviors create these words to distinguish different people. Keai and pink are just a portion of the things some people choose to perform."
Self role-playing of stereotypes of cute Asian women
"Not Your Stereotype"
#3 STRONG AND INDEPENDENT CUTENESS ✯☽ .✧ . *
"Cute is a heavily labelled word. It is always associated with childish, shallow, unintelligent, etc. "
"Strong & Independent Cuteness" (music: winter bokeh by idealism & jinsang)
#4 FURRY SHOUTS ✯☽ .✧ . *
