This film embodies my exploration of multiple media. When the memory is abstracted, familiar things become unrecognizable, painting seems like a hallucinogen which can temporarily eliminates our identify and physical barriers, so we can experience the short process of seeing the same memory at that moment. The narrative fragments are involved in a nostalgic mood, intimately retelling each other's story and past family memories.
Qinyu Wang is an artist based in London and Hangzhou, working with photography, moving image and animation.Her practice is mainly focused on memory and loss. Since her grandmother got Alzheimer's disease, She watched her losing her memory and self-consciousness. When the memory becomes abstracted, familiar things turn unrecognizable. Her beautiful but fragile hallucinations are just like a bubble and shadow haze. With the passage of time and the changes of space, it will eventually burst. She hopes to record the changes of the family, by collecting family archives and painting family stories. Her work, which is in a dialogue with the past, provides context to her grandmother‘s once fulfilled and vibrant life.
