The Body Series – Prequel contains 3 video works, Body Echoes, Body Disassembly, and Body Cycle. The 3 video works had been through image post-production to remove the visible spaces, leaving the bodies as the only objects. The skin texture comes out from the bodies, narrating the artist’s body processes. The body parts are dressed up, dissembled, and re-assembled, making the body the soul of the space, starting with the white of the Body Echoes, through the blue of Body Disassembly, ending with the red blood of Body Cycle. Together, these 3 videos form the prequel of the story of body process.
Body Echoes - Covered with thick flour paste, the body is hidden in the background. Both hands hold the speakers connected to the pudendum. With the weird echoes from the semi-vacuum state, the images of the face and the right breast come out behind the speakers slowly.
Body Disassembly: The body parts in the image are disassembled and re-assembled again. In the beginning, it is like a plant with leaves and fruits growing out. Then, it looks like a bird flying. Finally, it is like a trigger to shoot an arrow.
