Ziwei Gong – MA/MFA

My practice plays between the fictional world and reality by using a found item, fabric, through painting, collage, and sculpture methods. Interested in bringing the fictional to life and transform reality into fictional languages, I use my work to create spaces where fiction and reality meet and blend with each other.

Inspired by the quarantine experience recently, I started to make large collages by using fabrics. Clothes, bedsheets, gauze and other kinds of soft fabrics lead to a comfortable and domestic feeling. In this series of work, I imagine what people would do in an isolated indoor space. Through placing cutout figures and objects on fabric, these works explore how people do things and kill time by interacting with objects and how people engage themselves with different spaces.
